Target Australia has recalled a number of its chocolate products available at Target and Target Country stores nation wide, just two weeks before Easter.
The recall is because the product batches contain tree nuts and peanuts, without the mandatory allergen warning on the label.
The recalled product batches are Target Milk Chocolate Bunny, in 900g, 500g, 200g or 100g sizes; Target Dark Chocolate Bunny, 100g; Target White Chocolate Bunny, in 500g or 100g sizes; Target Milk Chocolate Duck, 250g; Klett Easter Cone Mixed Bag of Chocolates, 400g; and Klett Milk Chocolate Sitting Bunny, 150g.
Target Australia says the label states “may contain shell fruit” instead of “tree nuts and peanuts”, and warns that any consumers who have a tree nut or peanut allergy or intolerance may have a reaction if these items are consumed. The products are safe to consume for customers who don’t have a tree nut or peanut allergy.
All the recalled products all have an expiry date of June 30, 2016 and are packaged in clear cellophane or foil wrappers.
Target says no other chocolate or confectionery products have been affected by this recall.
