Sainsbury’s has issued an urgent recall of its All Butter Croissants amid fears they pose a dangerous risk to anyone with a nut allergy.
The supermarket giant has recalled the pastries because they contain an almond filling that has not been declared on the packaging.
The recall covers individual 70p Sainsbury’s bakery All Butter Croissants and £1.10 twin packs with best before dates up to and including September 26.

Sainsbury’s said it has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall and customers can return the pastries to their nearest store for a full refund.
The supermarket said it is ‘urgently investigating with its supplier’ how many products have been sold across the UK.
A spokesman added Sainsbury’s was ‘not willing to take risks where the safety of customers are concerned.’

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said, ‘We are recalling Sainsbury’s in store Bakery All Butter Croissants due to a labelling error. We are urgently investigating with our supplier following a report that the product may contain almonds.
‘We’re asking customers who have an allergy to almonds to not consume the product and return it to their nearest Sainsbury’s store, where they will receive a full refund. No other Sainsbury’s products are affected and we’re sorry for any concern and inconvenience this may cause.’
The warning comes after Pret A Manger was warned about nine customers suffering an allergic reaction to sesame in its food in the year before a teenager died after eating one of the chain’s baguettes, an inquest heard yesterday.
Pret’s packaging failed to mention sesame seeds were ‘hidden’ in the dough despite being given a ‘specific warning’ about the dangers, West London Coroner’s Court was told.
Pret, one of the country’s biggest food chains, did not have to list sesame seeds as an ingredient in the £3.45 sandwich.
