Two-thirds of UK takeaways breaking the law on food allergen labelling

Two-thirds of UK takeaways breaking the law on food allergen labelling
22/07/2015

More than 66% of UK takeaways are breaking the law by failing to label any potential allergens that the food they serve contains.

An investigation by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) found that these restaurants neglected to provide the legally-required food allergy information in the 14 major allergens in their food, with fried chicken, pizza, Chinese and fish and chip shops being the worst offenders.

Legislation, which came into effect at the end of 2014, states that all food providers have to now display clearly whether their food contain any of the 14 major allergens, such as nuts, fish and eggs.

As part of its campaign, the RSPH is calling for allergy competency awards to be displayed alongside food hygiene ratings, where good practice is conducted. Additionally, it also wants businesses to ensure their staff are properly trained to manage the risks from allergens.

Since legislation was introduced last year, Stocksigns has produced a number of allergen signs and information posters for the food and catering industry to enable outlets to be compliant and clearly show all allergens present in food.

The full range is available to buy now online, alternatively contact the Stocksigns team for more information on 01737 77 40 72 or sales@stocksigns.co.uk.
