Identification of the products

Actions to be taken by local authorities
The product presents a health risk if consumed in sufficient quantity, and does not comply with the food safety requirements specified in the Food Safety Act 1990, due to contamination with Sudan IV. In addition, Sudan IV is not a permitted colour.
If these products are found within their area, enforcement officers should ensure that they are withdrawn and destroyed, if necessary using powers under The Food Safety Act. As the company have not issued any press release or made the public aware of the withdrawal, there remains the possibility that unused affected product is in consumers' homes. Local authorities are therefore asked to consider providing local publicity on this issue at the next available opportunity.
It is essential that all non-unitary authorities liaise at county level to ensure that they co-ordinate their actions.
