A bride with a nut hypersensitive reaction ate cake containing almonds on her wedding day regardless of caterers assuring her the reception can be nut-free.
Kayleigh Cortis, 23, from Kettering, Northamptonshire, suffered an allergy after she used to be served the cake, no longer realising it had almonds in.
Impressions Caterers Ltd has been informed to pay greater than £three,000 through Trading Standards after admitting the error.
Mrs Cortis described the day as “a diabolical mess”.
“Overall the day was ruined because I couldn’t eat, or at least keep anything I’d eaten down,” she mentioned.
“I couldn’t drink anything other than water and I was left being sick throughout the day.”
The couple were given married at Hunsbury Hill in Northampton in September 2016, and asked a number of instances their reception meals will have to no longer include nuts.
After the error took place, Northamptonshire County Council Trading Standards performed an investigation, ensuing within the catering corporate admitting an offence opposite to the Food Safety Act.
“Usually I have an inhaler and antihistamines, but I didn’t have any of those with me as I’d been assured all the food would be fine for me to eat,” Mrs Cortis mentioned.
“I did not even suppose to test the cake. Minutes when I ate it, my lips began swelling and I used to be ill. I even needed to take my wedding ring off as my arms swelled up.
“It’s a day you handiest get to do as soon as, and what took place used to be appalling.”
The company has been informed to pay £three,156.36, which incorporates a high quality of £850, investigation prices and £85 sufferer surcharge charge.
