Recalled chapattis

The Vitasia 8 Chapattis contain wheat (gluten) which is not mentioned in English on the label.

This makes the product a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy to wheat or an intolerance to gluten.

The recall affects all 360g packs with a 'best before' date of 4 August 2016
