MORRISONS is recalling two Chinese ready meals due to fears they could lead to allergic reactions.
The meals by Chinese Takeaway contain milk yet this isn’t mentioned on the label, meaning it’s a health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk.

People who are allergic to milk can experience problems with their digestive system if they consume it, such as diarrhoea, a bloated stomach, feeling sick and stomach cramps.
The product recall applies to the Chinese Takeaway Chicken Curry and Sweet and Sour Chicken as well as the Chinese Takeaway Chicken in Black Bean Sauce and Sweet and Sour Chicken meals – both weighing 1245g.
Apart from the main dish, they come with sides such as prawn crackers, vegetable spring rolls and egg fried rice, and they’re enough to feed two people.
The recall only affects the meals with use by dates of March 4, March 5 and March 6. They cost £7.50 each.
Customers who are allergic to milk are being advised not to eat the food. Instead, you should return it to your nearest Morrisons store, where you’ll be given a full refund.
Morrisons currently has around 500 stores across the UK. You can find your nearest one using its store locator.
Your product recall rightsPRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.
But it’s often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.
If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.
When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don’t there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.
If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.
They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.
In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full redund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.
You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.
The Sun has asked the supermarket to confirm whether they’ve been sold both online and in stores, but we haven’t yet heard back.
A statement by Morrisons said: “We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and assure customers of our continuing commitment to the highest standard of product quality and safety.”
