Chocolate maker Cadbury has recalled some Caramilk chocolate blocks because pieces of plastic have been found in some of them.
The company said in a statement the products affected are 190g Cadbury Caramilk chocolate block sold in Australia only with best before dates of 17/01/2019 and 21/01/2019.
The recalled product has been available for sale in Coles, Woolworths, IGA’s and independent retailers (VIC only) in NSW, QLD, VIC, SA, TAS and WA.
Products containing plastic may cause minor injury if consumed. Analysis of the samples received to date has determined that this product does not appear to pose a serious health or food safety risk, but the quality and safety of our products, as well as our consumers, is our first priority and a recall has been initiated to prevent the risk of minor injury.
Affected product should not be consumed and should be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund – no proof-of-purchase is required.
No other Mondelēz International or Cadbury brand or product is affected. Cadbury Caramilk
products sold in New Zealand and all other Caramilk products sold in Australia with different best before dates, are not affected by this recall.
