Mum-of-eight dental nurse Celia died after eating a “super veg rainbow flatbread” in Bath.
She had a reaction to milk protein in supposedly dairy-free yoghurt in the £3.75 snack.
Pret and its suppliers, Planet Coconut, are facing a criminal trial over alleged food safety failures in the case.
Celia’s death came after Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, 15, died in 2016 after eating a mislabelled Pret baguette bought at Heathrow Airport.

At the time of Celia’s death, her family said: “We have kept a dignified silence as the family has come to terms with her sudden and unexpected death.
“Celia was a much-loved mother, daughter, sister and wife.
“We miss her greatly and just want answers to why she died after lunch with her family.”
