SCONES and bagels sold in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Ocado are being recalled due to fears they could trigger allergic reactions.
The treats contain mustard and soya (scones) as well as egg (bagels), yet this isn’t mentioned on the label, meaning it’s a health risk for anyone with such allergies.

Due to incorrect packaging of the scones, consumers may also be led to believe that the treats taste of toffee and hazelnut, instead of cheese.
The product recall applies to the Genesis Crafty cheese scones and the Genuis gluten free cinnamon and raising bagels – both sold in packs of four.
It only affects the scones with best before dates up to and including April 2, and the bagels with best before dates up to and including April 8, according to notices on the Food Standard Agency website.
The scones cost £1.80 for a pack of four at Waitrose and Ocado, while the bagels set you back £2.05 at Waitrose, Ocado and Sainsbury’s.
The latter have previously also been sold at Asda for £2.
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.
Customers who are allergic to mustard, soya or egg are being advised not to eat the treats. Instead, you should return it to where you bought it, where you’ll be given a full refund.
Point of sale notices are also displayed in all stores that are selling these products.
If you need more information about the scones, you can contact Genesis Crafty on 028 79632465.
Should you require more details about the bagels, you should instead contact Genius on 0800 019 2736 or send en email using its enquiry form.
