The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following White Chocolate products are subject to this recall:

  • Cadbury Caramilk White Chocolate Bar, caramel flavoured white chocolate, sold in 190 gram bars with best-before dates of 17/01/2019 and 21/01/2019

According to the ACCC, a “limited” number of Cadbury Caramilk products have been found to contain small, flexible pieces of food grade plastic as a result of a machinery fault during the manufacturing process. These Caramilk products containing plastic may cause minor injury if consumed.

In general, if rubber, 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.

==> 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 rubbish, making sure small children and pets can’t access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Cadbury Chocolate Bars, 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 where you purchased it for a full refund.
