The UK Food Standards Agency (“FSA”) reports the following Dark Chocolate Brazil Nut Mix products are subject to recall:

  • Tesco branded Finest Festive Belgian Dark Chocolate Brazil Nut Mixes, sold in 225 gram bags with a batch/lot designation of L0075004, use-by end date of May 2021

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FSA, Tesco has recalled certain batch/lots of Tesco branded Finest Festive Belgian Dark Chocolate Brazil Nut Mixes because some packs have been mispacked in Tesco Finest Festive Fruit and Nut Selection packaging and therefore an allergen, Sulphur Dioxide is not properly identified on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to Sulphites (Sulfites) and/or Sulphur Dioxide.

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