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.

Due to the presence of undeclared almond ingredients in these packs, Mondelez International is taking action by recalling the above product from customers and has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.

The company has also issued a “point-of-sale notice” to its customers, the FSA said.

The purpose of the notice is to explain to customers why the product is being recalled and to tell them what to do if they have bought the product.

The notice states: “If you are allergic or intolerant to Almonds, please check the outside of the bag for the date code and either batch code numbers before opening the pack and do not consume the product.

“Instead please return the product to the store from which the product was purchased for a full refund, or contact Mondelez consumer care line.”

The advice provided by theFood Standard Agency states: “If you have bought this product and have an allergy to nuts, do not eat it.

“Instead return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund or contact the Mondelez consumer care line on 0800 81818.”

No other Mondelez UK products are known to be affected.

In further chocolate news, dicount store Home Bargains has angered customers after it released giant Toblerone bars for a budget-breaking price. 


  • Cadburys Dairy Milk chocolate under recall or undisclosed allergens

Home Bargains revealed that for the Christmas season they will be selling a giant chocolate bar of Toblerone, but customers were left shocked and outraged after discovering how much this festive treat is. 

The giant Toblerone bar, which is described by Home Bargains as “a fantastic gift which guarantees an impactful surprise,” weighs a whopping 4.5kg and has an enormous length of 80cm, it truly is a giant in the chocolate bar industry.

The sweet treat is available online and in-store, according to Home Bargains Facebook page, which joked: “We’re gonna need a bigger bag!”

Despite many enjoying the novelty chocolate bar, customers have been left outraged at the price, as currently, the giant treat is selling for a shocking £49, reduced from a whopping £73.

One bewildered customer joked: “Who in their right mind would pay that amount for a chocolate bar, especially a cheap one like that.”

Another added: “You want your head looking at if you’re gonna spend £50 on chocolate”.

One customer even took the time to work out if the £49 bar is worth the price, he said: “If you buy the 150g bars at the pound shop for 1.5 kg (ten bars) it’s £10. For 3kg (20 bars) it’s £20. For 4.5kg (30 bars) it’s £30 so your only really paying for the novelty of the item”

One customer pointed out the number of other Christmas gifts you’d be able to spend the cash on, while another asked if the retailer was joking.

Others added: “I really want one but I’m not quite at the level of madness required to spend £50 on a bar of chocolate” and “I’ll rather just get my weekly shopping than waste £50 on this”.

Some did, however, like the idea of the chocolate treat – tagging their friends and asking for one as a Christmas present.
