An Asian fast-food chain has issued an urgent recall on one of its products after one of the ingredients was not mentioned on the label.

Itsu’s 120g pack of vegetable gyoza’s sold in Tesco stores is believed to contain prawns, a health risk for anyone with an allergy to crustaceans.

The Japanese dumplings with the batch codes LH283, LH293 and LH302 and a best before dates of 11, 12 14 December 2019, 29 January 2020 and 27 February 2020 are at risk.

Notices have been issued in Tesco stores across the county explaining why the gyozas is being recalled and what to do if they have bought the product.

A statement issued by Food Standards Agency (FSA) saying: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to crustaceans, do not eat it.

“For a full refund please send a picture of the batch code on the packaging to:

or write to itsu [grocery], 52-54 High Holborn, London WC1V 6RL.”

They added: “Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.

“Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.

“When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert.”
