Milk in Cadbury Chunks Bournville

Cadbury Chunks Bournville, which can be used for cooking and baking in the home, contains milk, which is not an intended ingredient. This makes the product a possible health risk for anyone who is allergic to or intolerant of milk.

The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert advising anyone with an allergy to or intolerance of milk to not eat this product.

Product details

The affected product is:

  • Cadbury Chunks Bournville (180g, in a microwavable plastic bag)

The product has been marketed and sold by Premier Foods under licence. Although the product is no longer manufactured, a small number of bags may still be on sale and people may still have the affected product in their home.

Premier Foods has contacted retailers and will issue allergy alert notices to tell people who are milk allergic and milk intolerant about the milk being in the product.

If you are allergic to or intolerant of milk, and you have bought the product, you can return it for a full refund by calling the Premier Foods helpline on 0800 234 6328.

In addition, Premier Foods will be contacting the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members that milk has be found in the product.

No other Cadbury Bournville products are known to be affected.

Allergy Alerts

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.

In such situations the Agency will issue an Allergy Alert. It is also possible to subscribe to an email alert system to receive automatic messages whenever Allergy Alerts are issued. Click on 'Get alerts' in the box at the bottom of this page to find more details.

You can get details of all the latest allergy alerts as soon as they're issued by getting the details sent as a SMS text message direct to your mobile phone.
