You’ll have seen that Sainsbury’s and then Tesco alerted us all to a potential problem with various free from oat products a couple of days ago…

Asda sent out an alert last night; and I’ve just received one about Delicious Alchemy oats this morning.

Asda Chosen by You Pure Oat Muesli (Free From), 450g
Best before dates: 03/08/12

Asda Chosen by You Pure Porridge Oats (Free From), 450g
Best before dates: 02/08/12, 07/09/12

Delicious Alchemy Gluten Free Rolled Oats, 450g
Best before dates: 04/08/12, 05/09/12, 06/09/12

Delicious Alchemy Original Gluten Free Purely Oaty Fruity Nut Muesli, 450g
Best before dates: 04/08/12, 05/09/12, 06/09/12

All these product recalls are due to the same cause; intermittent contamination with gluten at source, revealed by internal quality control testing. I’m pleased that the testing is being carried out, but it is such a shame that the gluten free oat supply is going to get so low!

If you’ve bought these products with these date codes, don’t eat them but take them back to the shop.
