SPANISH heath authorities have issued a warning that nuts may be part of a batch of ice cream on sale in a number of shops across the Valencian Community.
According to reports, the strawberry ice cream cones coming from the UK may have an “undeclared presence of nuts” in them and thus could present a danger to people that have a nut allergy.
The Spanish Consumer, Food Safety and Nutrition Agency (AECOSAN), part of the ministry of health, have announced that the item ‘Ice King’ does not carry the usual warning label that it ‘may contain nuts’. However, traces have since been found in the ices.
Therefore, AECOSAN has advised anyone that suffers from a peanut allergy to avoid eating the ice cream, and if they’ve already bought some to immediately return it to the shop or supermarket.
The product is made in the Britain and sold throughout the UK and Ireland and across the east of Spain in British-run supermarkets or small corner shops among the expat community, and the possibly affected batch has a sell-by date of November 2020.
