Dealz and Tesco have both recalled confectionary items due to allergy risk.
Dealz and other stockists have had to recall chocolate raisins due to a contamination risk. Some of the packets accidentally contain chocolate covered peanuts instead, highly dangerous for those with nut allergies.
A notice read: “As a precautionary measure the supplier, Whitworths Limited, have initiated a product recall on a batch of milk chocolate raisins supplied to Poundland.
“There is a remote risk that a raw material supply error may lead to a few packs to become contaminated with chocolate coated peanuts.
“Please do not consume these products if you have purchased them.”
“Customers are asked to return the product to their nearest store where a full refund will be given.
“We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
“Check the barcode and batch details on your purchase matches those on this notice and return the item to your nearest store as soon as possible.
“If you have purchased this product for someone or know someone who has one, please tell them about this notice.”
They have a best before date of July 2018 and a batch number L519517, and they come in 150g packs.
Meanwhile, in Tesco, a biscuit pack is being recalled due to milk being in the product but not on the label.
The recall notice said: “Tesco is recalling all best before dates and all batches of its Cookie and Cream Biscuits because they contain milk which is not mentioned on the label.”
“This may make the implicated batches unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of milk or its constituents.”
