Waitrose have contacted the relevant allergy support organisations who will tell their members about the recall.
Point-of-sale notices have also been issued to customers of the supermarket giant.
The notices explain why the product is being recalled and gives information on what customers should do if they have bought it.
When a problem is spotted with an item, it can be ‘recalled’ or ‘withdrawn’.
This warning will be issued by a supermarket when they are aware of the problem.
