Co-op recalls 165,000 chocolate Santas after small batteries found inside two
The Co-op has said it is recalling 165,000 hollow milk chocolate Santa figures after two reports of alleged product tampering.
The company has announced a nationwide recall of the German-manufactured chocolates, which sell for £1 each.
The retailer said two customers found batteries in their foil wrapped chocolate Santas and that it was now investigating the matter.
A Co-op spokesman said:
“We are concerned about two separate instances of alleged product tampering involving our hollow milk chocolate Santa foil figures, which have been found to contain a small battery inside.
“As a result we have begun a UK-wide product recall. Customers with one of these products should not eat it but call our customer relations team for a full refund.”
If you have bought any of the product do not eat it. Instead, customers can also contact Co-op’s Customer Relation Team on 0800 0686 727. Spotted something? Got a story? Send a Facebook Message | A direct message on Twitter | Email: News@Deeside.com
