Lidl has recalled three products after failing to warn customers they contain potentially deadly allergens.

The budget supermarket is asking customers to return Bavarian Style Smoked Cheese with Ham, Bread Baking Mix and Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts.

Each item contains wheat, rye, barley (gluten), milk or hazelnuts which are not mentioned in English on the label.

With each recall, Lidl said the “product is a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance” to one of the allergens.

  • What products are affected?

Three products have been recalled by Lidl.

They are:

* Meine Kaserei Bavarian Style Smoked Cheese with Ham, 150g packs, with a used by date of May 30, 2016. The product contains milk, which is not declared on the packaging.

  • What should I do if I have bought these products?

The recalled was issued by the Food Standards Agency, which warned anyone with an intolerance to the ingredients not to eat the products.

“If you have bought any of the above products and have an allergy or intolerance to wheat, barley, rye (gluten), milk or hazelnuts do not eat it,” the FSA said.

“Instead, return it to the store from where you bought it for a full refund.”
