Five of the UK’s major food retailers have recalled a number of gluten-free products as they may contain gluten.

The Food Standards Agency says that Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose have recalled the products because they are a possible health risk for those with an allergy or intolerance to gluten.

Anyone who has bought one of the products and has an allergy or intolerance to gluten should not eat it but return it to the store from where it was bought.
