For many people, chocolate is important. It is a stress reliever and just a delicious snack. With Valentine’s Day having just passed, the cocoa goodness and its sales would have gone through the roof! But yesterday, a major Australian chocolate company issued a food recall. Which one is it?
Popular brand Cadbury Dairy Milk has issued a food recall for their popular limited edition Caramilk chocolate block. This product is a white and caramel white chocolate that was first introduced in the 1990’s. However, it’s shelf life was short and was discontinued within four years. Since then, it was brought back into Australian stores after it’s popularity in New Zealand. The popular product was completely sold out within three weeks.
Cadbury announced yesterday that they will be recalling the 190g chocolate block. The concerned product had the best before dates of 17/01/ 2019 and 21/01/2019. The recall was issued after there were small pieces of plastic found within the blocks. Although their analysis shows that the product does not appear to pose a serious health or food safety risk, but a recall has been initiated to prevent the risk of minor injury.
The company has warned that consumers should not consume the affected product and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund – no proof of purchase required.
Do you need to go and check your pantry for this chocolate? Do you need to schedule time to refund?
