Additional information:
The UK Chartered Trading Standards Institute (“CTSI”) reports the following Chocolate Meringues are subject to this recall:

  • HEMA branded Chocolate Meringues, sold with incorrect labeling and an incorrect article number of 10950001 and a best-before date code of 13-08-2016.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CTSI, during production of the Chocolate Meringues, a unknown number of packs were incorrectly labelled with the back label of the Vanilla Meringues. As a consequence, the label does not state that the product contains the soya allergen. Consumers who are allergic to soya are advised not to use the product. The safety warning applies to Chocolate Meringue with Meringue Vanilla stated on the back label (article number on incorrect label is 10950001) and with best before date 13-08-2016.

==> For information about Soya Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Meringues and could be allergic to their soya ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
