Where Pret went wrong.
I was asked for my take on the recent deadly allergy issues at Pret by the Food Consultants Society, and the whole sad episode has highlighted some important issues.
As I told the FCSI, a lack of understanding of allergens is at the heart of the issue.
“A person with an allergy will have to check every ingredient on every product, so by not giving the correct information it puts everybody at risk. I don’t think they thought it through.”
