According to the FSA, HEMA has recalled certain Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Letters as these may contain small pieces of plastic. The presence of plastic makes this product unsafe to eat and presents a safety risk.

In general, if metal, plastic and/or rubber 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, 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 garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Letters, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the chocolate products to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
