Urgent warning: Cadbury buyers urged to return products with spreading ‘deadly’ bacteria 

Six popular chocolate yoghurts were detected as possibly infected with monocytogenes, prompting a food recall alert for sweet-toothed Britons.

The product recall comprised Daim, Dairy Milk Buttons, and Dairy Milk Chunks chocolate treats with a use by date of May 18.

The potential contamination also included Crunchie and Flake chocolate desserts with a use by date of May 17 and a six-pack of Cadbury Heroes Chocolate Desserts with a use by date of May 18.

In a food alert issued late Monday night, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) stated, “Müller has taken the precautionary step of recalling some batches of various Cadbury branded dessert products due to the possible presence of listeria monocytogenes.”

The FSA also advised people with impacted batches not to consume the tainted yoghurts.

Instead, the non-ministerial government department advised affected buyers to return the items to the retailer where they were purchased for a full refund, with or without a receipt.

A spokesperson from Muller UK & Ireland said: “Müller produces these products under license from Mondelez International and has stressed that this does not impact any other products it produces in the UK or other markets.

“The business has informed the Food Standards Agency of this action and they have issued a Product Information Recall Notice.”

The FSA also advised people with impacted batches not to consume the tainted yoghurts.

Instead, the non-ministerial government department advised affected buyers to return the items to the retailer where they were purchased for a full refund, with or without a receipt.

Common symptoms of infection include chills, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhoea.

Listeria, on the other hand, has the potential to be more dangerous and even fatal in more fragile persons.

The most vulnerable to listeria are pensioners, pregnant women, unborn babies, babies under one month old, and persons with weaker immune systems.
