  • Aldi and Iceland recall: Urgent warning issued over salmonella risk

Cadbury milk chocolate has also been the subject of an urgent food recall recently.

Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda are urgently recalling Cadbury Dairy Milk treats amid discovery that some of the chocolate products may contain almonds (nuts) which are not disclosed on the product label.

The supermarket giants are recalling Cadbury Dairy Milk Little Robins due to concerns that the product has been incorrectly replaced with Cadbury Dairy Milk Little Robins Daim Chocolate.

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts.

The Food Standard Agency (FSA) warned that some of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Little Robins packs have been found to contain Cadbury Dairy Milk Little Robins Daim Chocolate due to a packing error.

In a statement released by the FSA, it warns that: “This error may not be immediately obvious as the individual chocolate pieces within the bag are wrapped in a similar foil.”

This product contains almonds (nuts) making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts.

The products impacted are batch code CIS3092812 and CIS3092822 with a best before the date of March 31, 2020.
