Grimbsy, England-based Young’s Seafood is recalling breaded fish fillet product sold in the United Kingdom due to it containing milk despite it not being listed as a labeled ingredient.

The omission means the product, Young’s Simply Breaded 2-Extra Large Fish Fillets, “is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents,” according to an announcement from the U.K. Food Standards Agency.

The recalled products, containing the batch codes AC L 0097, AB L0114, or AB L 0116, comes in a 300-gram pack size and contains a “best before” date of October 2021.

“If you have bought the above product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, do not eat it,” the agency warned.

In its own customer notice, Young’s said customers are eligible for a full refund, and that none of its other producers are affected by the recall.

“We apologize to retailers and our customers for any inconvenience caused by this recall,” the company said. “The safety and quality of our products is highly important to us and we take all issues regarding the production of our food extremely seriously.”
