Pret allergy advice 'wrong in store and online'

Gabriella Williams - who has a sesame and poppy seed allergy - says she asked a member of staff at Pret A Manger for allergen advice, and consulted the company's website, to ensure her sandwich was fine for her to eat.

Both suggested it did not contain poppy seeds - but the sandwich's dressing was made from them, she says, and she suffered an allergic reaction.

The company said: "We sincerely apologise for Gabriella's experiences.

"We take food allergies and providing allergen information to our customers very seriously and are reviewing our approach."
