Ikea recalls chocolate bars as milk and hazelnut are not clearly labelled

Ikea

Ikea has recalled chocolate bars because of insufficient labelling on the packaging, advising consumers of the presence of milk and hazelnut.

It advises customers who have bought dark chocolate CHOKLAD MÖRK 60 per cent and CHOKLAD MÖRK 70 per cent that the presence of milk and hazelnut is insufficiently declared on the packaging of those products.

It said the chocolate is safe to consume for those who do not have an allergy to milk or hazelnuts.

It cautioned that individuals who have such allergies may experience an allergic reaction if the products are consumed.

All affected products have been removed from the shelves. Ikea added that safety was its highest priority and products with all "best before by" dates are recalled.

Customers allergic to milk or hazelnuts or who have concerns, may return the affected products at the nearest Ikea store at a full refund. The "best before date" can be found on the back of the chocolate bar (YYYY/MM/DD).
