A “very small percentage” of the tins of Stagg Classic Chili Con Carne, with product expiry code: 15.05.2019, were discovered to contain the incorrect product - which itself contains 1.04% milk protein, an allergen not declared on the label.
A spokesperson for the manufacturer of Stagg Chili, Tulip Foods, confirmed the products mistakenly labeled as chilli were in fact tinned hot dogs.
The Tulip spokeperson said: “A small batch of STAGG® Classic Chili cans have been withdrawn due to a mislabelling issue which saw STAGG® Classic Chili labels used on cooked hot dog products. The issue was
restricted to a small portion of two pallets of products and was caused by human error, whereby the incorrect labels were used in the can labelling machine.
