==> 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 FSA, this recall was initiated after it was suspected that some boxes of Waitrose Belgian White Chocolate Chunk All Butter Cookies actually contain Waitrose Hazelnut & Milk Chocolate Cookies, a food product made with Hazelnuts. Due to this potential packaging error, it is possible that people with an allergy to Nuts in general and to Hazelnuts in specific could inadvertently consume these Cookies and experience life-threatening Anaphylaxis.

==> 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 these 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, adulteration 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 rubbish, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.
