Morrisons recalls some Free From Dark Chocolate Bars

Morrisons has recalled its Free From Dark Chocolate Bars with a ‘best before end’ date of February 2012, because the product contains milk. Milk is not an intended ingredient and is not mentioned on the product label. This makes the product a possible health risk to anyone who is allergic to or intolerant of milk. The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert.

If you are allergic to, or intolerant of, milk you are advised not to eat this product.

Product details

The recalled product is:

  • Morrisons Free From Dark Chocolate Bar, 35g
  • Best before end: February 2012

The company has recalled all affected stock. Point-of-sale notices will be put on show in stores, explaining to customers why the product has been recalled. If you have bought an affected product you can return it for a full refund.

The manufacturer of the product will contact the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.

No other 'best before' dates of Morrisons Free From Dark Chocolate Bar are 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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.
