Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Chocolate Products are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CTSI, the presence of Almond Nuts and Hazelnuts in these products has been frequent and not only occasionally detected. This situation underlines that these Chocolate Products are not suitable for consumption by those who are allergic or sensitive to these allergens.

The product ingredient and other package information does not state this frequent presence clearly enough as the product labels only state ‘may contain’. Therefore IKEA is recalling these products globally. The recalled Products are safe for anyone not allergic or sensitive to Almond Nuts and/or Hazelnuts.

==> For information about Nut Allergy (including Peanuts and Tree Nuts), please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Chocolate Products and could be allergic to their Almond Nut and/or Hazelnut 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 directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
