"This means the product poses a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg. The affected product is only sold in Lidl."

Customers who think they may have an allergy or intolerance to egg are advised not to eat the product and to return it to the Lidl store from which it was purchased.

Aunt Bessie's has also taken steps to contact relevant allergy support organisations about the recall, so they can inform at risk members, while point of sale notices have been issued to Lidl stores to display.
