Foreign objects

In the US, Almondy is recalling a limited quantity of Almondy Chocolate cake with Daim 14.1oz as a metal object has been found in a cake.

The company has said that the recall is isolated to products purchased at IKEA stores, with the batch code L2140 and best before date NOV.18.2023.

Almondy has urged consumers who have purchased the product to either return it to the store where it was bought for a full refund or to contact Almondy.

“At Almondy the quality and safety of our products is our number one priority,” said Margareta Johannesson, Quality Director at Almondy.

“We take the incident very seriously and as a precautionary measure we are therefore recalling products with the batch code stated above. We have identified what measures to take to prevent this from happening again.”

Undeclared allergens,

Meanwhile in the UK, Marks & Spencer is recalling its M&S Belgian Dark Chocolate Bar because some packs contain milk which is not mentioned on the label.

The product code for the recalled item is “Barcode 29087570” and it comes in a pack size of 180g. The best before date of the product is 09 November 2023.

Marks & Spencer is recalling the above product from customers and has reportedly contacted the relevant allergy support organisations so its members can be informed about the recall. The company has also issued a recall notice to its customers to explain why the product is being recalled.

If you have bought the product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, the advice says not to eat it. Instead it can be returned to your nearest store for a full refund.
