Tesco issues chocolate recall over peanut risk

Ingredient not mentioned on labels of multipacks

Tesco is recalling two of its chocolate bars over fears they could pose a health risk to anyone with a peanut allergy.

The supermarket's multipack of Nutty Nougat Caramel Chocolate Bars and Dreamy Caramel Chocolate Bars are being taken off shelves.

The UK's Food Standards Agency has issued an 'Allery Alert' and is asking people to return them in store for a full refund.

The supermarket says the bars contain peanuts, which are not mentioned on the label - making them a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to peanuts.

Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold. Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.

When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert.

More details on the packs impacted are available HERE.
