Yogurt raisins, manufactured by Rascal Confectionary, Essex, U.K., are widely distributed across Ireland under various brand names and also sold loose. Egg is not an intentional ingredient in this product. Some batches have been found to be egg-free, whilst several have been found to contain egg. Not all batches on sale in Ireland have been tested for the presence of egg.
