Pret a Manger to label products after allergy death
PA Pret a Manger will list all ingredients, including allergens, on its freshly made products following the death of a teenager who had an allergic reaction after eating a Pret sandwich. Theresa May called for a review of food labelling laws on Tuesday in the wake of her death. An inquest into Natasha's death began last week and heard the artichoke, olive and tapenade baguette the teenager ate contained sesame - to which she was allergic. Foods packaged on-site before sale do not require a specific allergen label attached under existing regulations. Natasha's parents have been campaigning to change food labelling laws, which they described as having "Played Russian roulette" with their daughter's life.
