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

  • Waitrose brand Orange & Milk Chocolate Cookies, sold in 150-gram packages with a best-before date code of 30 March 2017

==> No barcodes, UPCs, EANs, or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

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

According to the CTSI, Waitrose has recalled certain Orange & Milk Chocolate Cookies sold in 150 gram packages with a best-before date of 30 March 2017 because some packages actually contain Waitrose Hazelnut & Milk Chocolate Cookies, a product that contains hazelnuts. Due to this mislabelling, hazelnuts are not declared on the ingredient label, a hazard to those people with an allergy to nuts in general and Hazelnuts in specific.

==> For information about Nut Allergy (including Peanuts and Tree Nuts such as Hazelnuts), 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 the recalled Cookies and could be allergic to their 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.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure pets and small children can’t access the suspect food.
