Customers warned to not eat 6 types of Cadbury chocolate pud in urgent recall

An urgent warning has been issued about six types of Cadbury chocolate pudding.

The mammoth confectioner has raised fears there could be listeria in some of the puddings sold in the UK and Ireland.

The bacteria tends to infect people with Listeriosis and while for many people it does no harm, for others there can have more severe consequences.

The NHS says that refrigerated foods are the most at risk of carrying it, although it can end up in any type.

Now the alarm has been raised over a selection of the beloved brand’s chilled treats.

It was rung out by the FSA (Food Standards Agency) and covers six very specific puds made by the Uxbridge-based outfit.

The FSA said on Monday (May 2) that the measures were being taken by Mueller as a “precautionary step”.

The puds impacted include the single-sale 75g Crunchie, Daim, Flake, Dairy Milk Buttons and Dairy Milk Chunks.

In order for people to work out whether or not their dessert needs to be taken back they need to have a look at the use-by date.

Most of the products impacted have a use-by of May 18 – however, for a Crunchy or a Flake, the all-important date is May 17.

Cadbury Heroes puddings carrying the use-by of May 18 also need to be recalled.

Anyone who has puddings relating to this can take them back to the shop to change them for a full refund – regardless of whether or not they have a receipt.

Severe complications from Listeriosis can include meningitis – although mild symptoms are more commonplace.

In a statement, the FSA said: "Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.

"Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one-month-old and people with weakened immune systems."

Muller said in a statement to Tyla: “Müller UK & Ireland has taken the decision to recall some batches of certain Cadbury chocolate dessert that it produces as a precautionary measure.

“We are asking consumers to return any affected products to the store from where it was bought. For further information, they can contact our consumer care team on [email protected] or 07354 835 893.

“This is an isolated incident which only impacts these products in the UK and Ireland, and no other products we make in the UK or other markets are impacted.”
