BOTTLES of wine are being recalled from a store chain because of contamination fears.
West Yorkshire Trading Standards Service and local Environmental Health Departments are warning the public not to drink a brand of red wine which has been sold in Lidl UK's supermarkets.
The wine, Australian Creston Bay Brand Cabernet Shiraz 2002, contains a high level of sulphur dioxide and has been withdrawn by the company.
Sulphur dioxide is used widely as a preservative in foodstuffs within controlled limits. However the level found in Lidl's Australian Creston Bay Brand presents a health risk for asthmatics with an allergy to sulphur dioxide.
Consumers who have purchased wine at any of Lidl's eight West Yorkshire stores, including ones in Huddersfield and Mirfield, are therefore urged to check any unused bottles.
Only the 2002 Creston Bay Cabernet Shiraz is affected.
Martin Wood, of Trading Standards, said: "Although Lidl have withdrawn this product from their stores, we urge the company's customers to check that they are not exposed to risk from products already purchased."
Anyone concerned should contact the Consumer Helpline on 01133 848 848.
