The Environmental Health Directorate has warned that the Country Brand’s Hot Chilli Powder Packets could potentially contain traces of peanuts and could therefore be dangerous for those who have peanut allergies.

The product is distributed in small 25g and 250g plastic containers and they are part of lot number 150.260.

A statement from the directorate warns that some of the packets might already have been sold and invites the public to request more information at the Health inspectorate on 2133 7333 between 8.00 am and 2.30 pm or e-mail [email protected].
