Additional information:
The UK Food Standards Agency (“FSA”) reports the following Baked Goods are subject to recall:

  • Waitrose branded Chocolate Mini Cupcakes, sold in brown cardboard trays with a white plastic inner liner and a best-before date of 06 October 2020

==> No barcodes, EANs, DINs, UPCs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations 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 recal was initiated after it was suspected certain batch/lots packaged and sold as Waitrose branded Chocolate Mini Cupcakes actually contain the company’s Coffee and Walnut Mini Cupcakes instead. As a result, the product contains Walnuts (Nuts), an ingredient not mentioned on the package label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to Nuts in general and to Walnuts in particular.

==> For information about Nut Allergy (including Peanuts and Tree Nuts such as Walnuts), 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 these recalled Waitrose branded Chocolate Mini Cupcakes and could be allergic to their Walnuts 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 garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-9-9, your closest hospital A&E or emergency centre equipped to properly treat Anaphylaxis.
