Supermarket giant Morrison’s has pulled its chicken and mushroom pies off its shelves – because some contain fish and mustard.
The Yorkshire retailer had to withdraw its Morrisons Traditional Chicken & Mushroom Pie because some may actually contain fish and mustard.
This could pose a health risk to anyone who is allergic to these ingredients which are not labelled on the packs.
