Thurstons Fine Foods has recalled its Thurstons Apricot Jam because it contains sulphur dioxide, which is not mentioned on the packaging.

​This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide or sulphites.

A spokesman said: “If you have bought the above product and have a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide or sulphites, do not eat it. Instead, return the product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

The ‘best before’ end dates of the apricot jam are: December 31, 2016, January 5, 2017, March 27, 2017 and April 4, 2017

The company will be circulating a point-of-sale notice to its retail customers, so that copies can be displayed in stores that sell the affected product.
