The UK authorities have announced the introduction of new rules on allergen labelling of foods that are prepacked at the sellers premises for direct sale.

The adoption of the new law is triggered by the death of a teenager eating a baguette from the popular chain of English sandwich shops Pret a Manger. At present, foods which are prepacked at the sellers premises do not require a full ingredient list in line with European Regulaton on food information to consumers (Regulation 1169/2011). The sandwich the girl had bought did not have an ingredient list making that the girl was not able to observe the bread contained sesame to which she was severely allergic.

The new allergen labelling rules will make the display of a full ingredient list mandatory for all foods pre-packed for direct sale. The new legislation will apply from 2021 in order to allow producers and retailers the time to adapt to the new set of labelling rules.
