A Brisbane wholesale company has urgently recalled a product over fears of allergic reactions that could “put customers in danger” due to incorrect labelling.
Queensland Health has been alerted to the issue by Country Fresh Food Products after plastic containers of pine nuts were found to actually be peanuts.
The incorrect labelling on the containers could lead to an allergic reaction if a person with peanut sensitivities ate the nuts.
The company only discovered the error after a customer contacted them to report the nuts smelt like peanuts not pine nuts.
Further product testing revealed the error and the company is working with Queensland Health.
The company bought the plastic containers from an importer based in Victoria.
