MPI have issued a recall notice for Jimmy’s Pies after a customer with a MSG allergy had a “choking incident” after eating a mince pie.

The notice recalls specific batches of Jimmy’s Mince and Mince and Cheese pies “due to the presence of an undeclared ingredient, monosodium glutamate (MSG).”

Batches up to and including number 8250, and after 8253, are not affected by the recall.

Ministry for Primary Industries are advising those who have MSG allergies or intolerances should not consume the product.

Owner Dennis Kirkpatrick said that the “unintentional” addition had come to their attention when a customer queried the company’s use of MSG in its pies.

Jimmy’s quickly traced the source of the MSG, which had be inadvertently included in an ingredient which was supplied to them.

“We take an incident like this very seriously, and have apologised to the customers concerned, and are taking steps to recall, label or make our customers aware of any pies containing MSG they may have in storage.”

“If you are not allergic or intolerant to MSG, this recall does not affect you,” the notice specified.

Customers can return the products to their retailer for a full refund.
