The UK Food Standards Agency advised consumers yesterday that a single date code of Bovetti Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Beans (100g) contains undeclared casein, a milk protein, and is being recalled.
The chocolate was made in France and imported into the UK by Trans Manche Food Ltd. The recalled bars were sold in Waitrose, and may also have been available in other retail stores in the UK.
The recalled item is described as:
- Bovetti Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Beans, 100g: Best before 30 September 2009; Product code: L246
Individuals who are allergic to milk protein may experience severe symptoms shortly after consuming the recalled chocolate. Consumers should return the recalled Bovetti chocolate to the store for a refund.
The UK Food Standards Agency is working with its French counterpart to determine whether any additional actions are needed.
