Morrison have issued an allergy alert for their Free From Jaffa Cake Slices.
All date codes of the Jaffa Cake Slices have been removed from sale as testing has found the product containing milk protein (casein), which is not an intended ingredient. This makes the products a potential health risk for people who are allergic to or intolerant of milk or milk constituents.
