UK seafood products among those recalled in cancer dye scare Published:  23 February, 2005

Tesco’s tuna pate, Somerfields prawn coleslaw, Sainsbury’s Seafood sauce and Waitrose Tuna Mayonaise are just four seafood related products that have withdrawn from UK supermarket shares due to fears they may have been contaminated with the illegal food dye Sudan 1. The Food Standards Agency has advised people not to eat foods that have been inadvertently contaminated with an illegal dye, Sudan I. This dye was in a batch of chilli powder used by Premier Foods to manufacture a Worcester sauce, which was then used as an ingredient in a wide range of products. Premier Foods said it had been assured the powder did not contain Sudan 1. More than 350 food products have been removed from UK shops.
