Which chocolate products have been recalled by Müller over listeria fears

Cadbury desserts are being pulled from major supermarkets due to fears they could be contaminated with listeria bacteria.

Müller, which makes the products, said they were being removed from shelves as a precautionary measure.

The desserts are sold in many of the UK’s top supermarkets, including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda.

Which Cadbury desserts are being recalled?

The following products with the listed use-by dates are being recalled:

  • Cadbury Crunchie chocolate dessert 75g – 17 May, 2023
  • Cadbury Flake chocolate dessert 75g – 17 May, 2023
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons chocolate dessert 75g – 18 May, 2023
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Chunks chocolate dessert 75g – 18 May, 2023
  • Cadbury Heroes chocolate dessert 6x75g – 18 May, 2023
  • Cadbury Daim chocolate dessert 75g – 18 May, 2023

If you have purchased any of these products you should not consume it, and take it back to the store you bought it for a refund.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said in an alert issued late on Monday: “Müller has taken the precautionary step of recalling some batches of various Cadbury branded dessert products because of the possible presence of listeria monocytogenes.”

A spokesperson from Müller UK and 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.”

What are the symptoms of listeria?

Listeriosis is a rare infection caused by bacteria called listeria. It usually goes away on its own, but can cause serious problems for some people.

In most people, listeriosis has no symptoms or only causes mild symptoms for a few days. Symptoms include:

  • a high temperature of 38C or above;
  • aches and pains;
  • chills;
  • feeling or being sick;
  • diarrhoea.

The illness can be more serious for some people. Those more at risk include:

  • people who are pregnant;
  • newborn babies;
  • people over 65 years of age;
  • people with a condition that weakens their immune system, such as cancer, liver disease or kidney disease;
  • people having treatment that weakens their immune system, such as chemotherapy or steroid tablets;
  • people with diabetes who are unable to keep their blood sugar level down, even with treatment (uncontrolled diabetes).

Speak to a doctor if you are included in one of these groups and think you may have listeriosis.
