We issue food alerts and notices in Scotland to let consumers know about problems associated with food and drink. We also publish UK-wide food alerts, allergy alerts, and recalls. These are published on our website as well as social media channels.
A Product Recall Information Notice (PRIN) will be issued when:
a solution to the problem has been put in place, or
the product has been, or is being, recalled from consumers
An Allergy Alert (AA) is issued when:
the allergy information on food labels is missing or incorrect, or
if there is some other allergy risk, the affected foods need to be recalled from sale.
When this happens, we will put a solution to the issue in place and issue an Allergy Alert to inform consumers.
