The owner of an Indian sweets shop has spoken of his ‘deep regret’ after a student almost died eating a cake he said was ‘peanut free.’

Preethi Koshy, 22, suffered a severe allergic reaction after taking one mouthful of marble cake, which was in fact 55 per cent made up of peanuts, and spent the next three days on a life-support machine.

When her mother bought the cake at a food fair and asked if it contained peanuts, stall-holder Kamal Parekh, of RK Sweets, St Paul’s Road, Deepdale, Preston, said it did not.

RK Sweets was fined £7,500 after admitting selling food that was not of the nature, substance or quality demanded by the purchaser under the Food Safety Act 1990.
