Choking Hazard Prompts Waitrose Chocolate Recall

  • Written by Editor

Waitrose has recalled four types of their luxury chocolate bars over fears they may contain pieces of plastic.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said the 85g Waitrose 1 bars, which have a best before date of July 2018, “could represent a safety risk” and urged customers not to eat them.

The affected bars include white chocolate, white chocolate with matcha tea and pistachio, milk chocolate with pistachio, almond and hazelnut and milk chocolate with feuilletine and sea salt, the FSA said.

In a statement, Waitrose said: “We are recalling the products, as there is the potential that a small number of bars may be contaminated with pieces of plastic. Customers who have purchased any of the above products should not consume them, but return them to Waitrose for a full refund.

“We apologise for any inconvenience to our customers.”

Customers who bought the affected chocolate bars can call Waitrose on 0800 188884.
