Food Alerts are issued by the Food Standards Agency. They let local authorities and consumers know about problems associated with food and, in some cases, provide details of specific action to be taken.
There are two types;
- Food Alerts For Information - where a solution to the problem has been put in place
- Food Alerts For Action - where enforcement authorities need to take action. They are often issued in conjunction with a product withdrawal or recall by a manufacturer, retailer or distributor.

Some Food Alerts relate to food allergies. Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.
