The Apprentice winner Alana Spencer forced to recall products
The Apprentice 2016 winner Alana Spencer has been forced to recall some of her products.
It was Alana who won The Apprentice last year, securing a £250,000 investment for her bakery business.
But she’s found herself in trouble with The Food Standards Agency over labels which posed a “possible health risk”.
It’s reported by The Sun that the labels on some products failed to adequately display allergen information.
“She has had to recall some products, not the entire range,” a source told the newspaper. “It’s about warning customers because the labels weren’t quite right. It is careless.”
A spokesman for Alana told the tabloid: “There was an issue with inaccurate labelling on some mixed boxes sold on the Ridiculously Rich website.
“Lord Sugar was made aware of the situation immediately.
“He’s spoken to Alana and is satisfied she has put the right measures in place to avoid a situation like this again.”
Earlier this year, Alana spoke out about working with no nonsense Lord Sugar after her win.
And while there may no longer be TV cameras following her every move, she’s still regularly facing showdowns with Lord Sugar in his boardroom.
“He’s definitely not a complete teddy bear,” Alana admitted. “He doesn’t like waffling, that’s the one thing’s learnt. He just wants you to get the point.
“There have been a few times in board meetings after the Apprentice, where he just said: ‘Right get to the point, what are we doing?’”
Speaking to OK! magazine, Alana went on: “It takes a bit of getting used to at first, you don’t meet many people like Lord Sugar.
“Once you’re used to it, it’s great because you know where you stand.”
The Apprentice 2017 currently airs on BBC One on Wednesday nights.
