The Environmental Health directorate has warned that three products by UK brand The Fine Cheese Company have been found to contain mustard seed.

“Pickled walnuts for cheese, pickled pears for cheese and pickled figs for cheese must not be consumed by persons allergic to mustard since they contain traces of mustard seeds,” the directorate warned.

The directorate added that part of the consignment has already been sold, and they added that the public is kindly requested to contact the Health Inspectorate Services between 8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on telephone number 21337333, or by calling personally at its offices at Continental Business Centre, Old Railway Track, Santa Venera or by email [email protected] if they have any queries.

 The public is also being invited to access the Directorate’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Environmental-Health-Directorate-Malta/145027878928626?ref=hl  or our official website at http://health.gov.mt/en/environmental/Pages/Home-Page.aspx for similar information.
