Linda McCartney Foods Vegetarian ¼ LB Burgers are being recalled from Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and other retail food stores in the United Kingdom due to the possible presence of milk ingredients, an undeclared allergen that may pose a health risk to persons with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.
