Pret A Manger confirm second customer death due to allergic reaction

Pret a Manger 'probing death of second customer who collapsed after suspected allergic reaction'

A second person died as a result of an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients in a Pret A Manger food product, the global sandwich chain has confirmed.

An investigation is under way after a customer with a dairy allergy collapsed and died in December 2017 after eating a vegan wrap bought in a branch in Bath, which had been contaminated with milk protein.

The patron died after eating a "super-veg rainbow flatbread" that was supposed to be dairy-free.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) was informed and all Coyo products were recalled nationwide.

Pots were also pulled from supermarket shelves across the country.

Pret claims CoYo UK sold it a guaranteed dairy-free yoghurt that contained dairy protein.

The chain said it withdrew all affected products as soon as it was made aware of the incident by Bath and North East Somerset Council.

At the time Coyo said it was "devastated" that dairy was found in its goods, "especially as being dairy-free sits at the heart of everything we do", it added.

The company said it was taking legal action against Coyo.

A spokesman for Pret said: "Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of our customer in this awful case and we will seek to assist them in any way we can".

Pret A Manger has expressed its "deepest sympathies" with the family of the customer involved.

The news came just after a London coroner criticised the British sandwich chain and British Airways last month after Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, 15, collapsed during a flight from London to Nice in September 2016.

'Pret says it has recognised there is much more it can do, we agree.

But its supplier Coyo denies its yoghurt is to blame over the death.

"We have always taken food safety and allergen control extremely seriously". All CoYo manufacturing facilities are exclusively dairy-free and do not produce any dairy products, which makes our allergen control even more robust.

"COYO will continue to cooperate with all authorities and assist the inquest in finding the true cause".

In a statement issued in February the company said it had carried out a "thorough review" of its ingredients and identified that the contaminated material was provided by an external third-party supplier, whose relationship had now been terminated.

Pret has announced that full ingredient labelling will be introduced to all products that are freshly made in its shop kitchens.
