According to the FSA, Co-op has recalled all Hollow Milk Chocolate Bunny Treats due to alleged product tampering in which one (1) battery was found in a Bunny by a small child. The presence of a small battery inside this food makes this product unsafe to eat and presents a risk to health and safety.

The Nottingham Post reported a single-cell battery was found inside a Hollow Milk Chocolate Easter Bunny in Bestwood, Nottingham, this past Saturday. A police investigation has been launched into the incident.

If plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Milk Chocolate Bunny Treats, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, kindly return the product to the store Co-op where you purchased it for a full refund.
