The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is warning the product contains undeclared mustard and is "a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to mustard".

Waitrose has become the latest supermarket to recall a popular product over customer safety fears. The upmarket store has recalled Findlater’s Roast Smoked Salmon Pate with the FSA issue a “do not eat” warning to customers who have bought the product.

While the item is not manufactured by Waitrose, the recall only affects products sold in its supermarket stores and is specific to England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Waitrose is urging customers not to consume the pate if they have an intolerance or allergy to mustard, and instead, package up the item and return it to their local branch for a refund.
