A low fat ice cream popular with dieters has been recalled after it was revealed that an undeclared ingredient could be potentially harmful to those with allergies.

The Halo Top Mint Chip Ice Cream and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream were both found to contain chocolate chips with soya which is not listed on the label - an ingredient potentially harmful to those with soy allergies.

Halo Top, a high-protein, low-calorie ice cream, is popular with dieters on the Slimming World and Weight Watchers diet programmes.

The Food Standards Agency has now listed the full product details of all ice creams to be recalled.
