The Food Standards Agency (FSA) proposing new regulations to protect customers with allergies.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has proposed that food outlets should list all ingredients in order to protect customers with allergies.

The strict new rules which include highlighting the 14 major allergens comes after the death of Natasha Ednan-Laperouse in 2016, who had eaten a sandwich from Pret a Manger.

The government said “We are working at pace to bring forward legislation that ensures food allergy suffers can feel safe and secure.”

If ministers choose to proceed with the recommendation, food outlets will be required to provide a full list of ingredients on each product, highlighting nuts, eggs and dairy and other products that are frequent allergens.
