The Food Standards Agency has decided to recommend changes in the labelling of ready to eat food, to highlight the dangers of allergens.

At the moment food prepared on the same site as it is sold, doesn't have to have warning labels about allergens, because it is assumed anyone who needs to know will ask the staff who made it about the food's ingredients.

The flaw in that system was exposed by the death of 15 year old Natasha Ednan-Laperouse who collapsed after eating a baquette from Pret a Manger which contained sesame seeds, to which she was allergic.

Pret a Manger has already started rolling out full labelling on all its products in its stores.
