As well as being a problem for vegans who follow a dairy free diet out of choice, the dairy content in the supposedly dairy-free product could put those who suffer from a lactose allergy or intolerance at risk. This includes milk and milk constituents.
Both a white chocolate and milk chocolate version of the confectionary have been recalled.
A statement has also been released by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) about the recall, which said “this product contains milk making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents”.
Tesco has issued the recall in order to ensure the safety of its customers. A point of sale notice has also been issued, which will “explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”
The possible milk content of the chocolate bars is also reinstated on the point of sale notice. Tesco has requested that if its customers “have bought an affected product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents” to “please don’t eat it”.
Tesco will be accepting the returned chocolate bars in exchange for a full refund, without a receipt being required.
