Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is reminding food businesses that mandatory allergen labelling requirements for lupin begin on 26 May 2018.
Lupin is a legume which belongs to the same plant family as peanuts, and has the potential to be an allergen.
Correct allergen labelling can mean the difference between life and death for people with food allergies so it is vital that food businesses get it right.
FSANZ provided this timely reminder.. “Even if the food is not in a package (for example, food prepared at and sold from a takeaway shop), allergen information must be displayed in connection with the food or provided to the purchaser if requested,”
