ASDA has pulled Crosse and Blackwell’s Green Vegetable and Kale soup from its shelves because it contains milk – which was not stated on the packaging.
Milk has been found in batches of the soup with a best before date of May 2020.
This could pose a risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk, who could eat the soup without realising.
The soup is currently sold in Asda for £1.07 for a 400g can.
The supermarket is advising customers who have purchased the soup with a best before date of May 2020, to return it to their nearest store.
They will be given a full refund, even if they don’t have a receipt.
Point of sale notices are also being displayed in stores where the product is sold, which explain why it’s been recalled and what customers should do if they’ve bought it.
According to the NHS, people with a milk allergy can suffer from a range of symptoms after eating or drinking milk, including swelling to the face and eyes, vomiting, diarrhoea and eczema.
Some severe forms of milk allergy can also result in anaphylactic shock, which can be life threatening.
As a customer, you have rights if a recall or safety warning gets issued on something that you’ve bought.
There is no central database that lists all product recalls in the UK, but you can find the most recent recalls and safety notices on the Chartered Trading Institute website.

You can also find a similar list for food on the Food Standards Agency website.
Earlier this summer, British supermarkets had to take 43 sweetcorn-based products off the shelves, over fears they could contain the potentially-deadly listeria bacteria.
Health and safety experts have warned that any frozen veg you buy should be boiled or microwaved to kill any bacteria.
