Popular crisps urgently recalled over fears they could trigger deadly allergic reactions | The Sun

POPULAR crisps have been urgently recalled over fears they may trigger deadly allergic reactions.

Just Crisps' sea salt and apple balsamic vinegar potato crisps are being withdrawn "due to the possible presence of milk".

Brits who have purchased affected batches of the snack have been told not to eat them if they have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.

Milk allergy symptoms include a rash, itching, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhoea.

In severe cases, it can cause anaphylaxis – a severe, life-threatening reaction when swelling in the throat can block the airways.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA), which issued the alert this week, recalls food considered unsafe for human consumption.

People who cannot consume milk are either allergic to the proteins in cow's milk or they cannot digest the sugar in the drink, known as lactose intolerance.

Around three in 100 babies have a cow's milk allergy but most grow out of it during their childhood, the NHS says.

When older children and adults suffer from an allergy it's usually quite serious.

Many products on supermarket shelves that are not dairy products still contain milk, such as, cereals, bread, biscuits, crackers, sauces and cakes.
