ICELAND shoppers should check if they’ve got pizzas, pasta and pasties sold as part of the supermarket’s ‘No Cheese’ range as six items have been recalled.
The UK-wide recall comes after the frozen food specialist found its supposedly vegan range may actually include milk, which hasn’t been declared on the label.
This makes the items a risk for anyone with an allergy or an intolerance to milk or milk constituents.
Symptoms of a lactose intolerance can include diarrhoea, a bloated stomach, stomach cramps and pains, and feeling sick, according to the NHS.
Products in the recall include four different pizzas, cheese and onion pasties, and a ready made macaroni cheese.
The majority cost £2, although they’ve since been taken off sale online.
