Salmonella chocolate bar anyone?

More than a million Cadbury chocolate bars are to be removed from shelves amid fears that they may be contaminated with salmonella.

The 250g Dairy Milk Turkish, Dairy Milk Caramel and Dairy Milk Mint bars, the Dairy Milk 8 chunk and the 1kg Dairy Milk bar are among products affected.

The 105g Dairy Milk Buttons Easter Egg and the Freddo bar were also affected.

The contamination was caused by a leaking pipe at Cadbury's Marlbrook plant, near Leominster, Herefordshire.

A Cadbury spokesman said the move had been carried out 'purely as a precautionary measure'.

'The levels are significantly below the standard that would be any health problem, but we are taking this measure as a precaution.

Affected products

  • Dairy Milk Turkish 250g

  • Dairy Milk Caramel

  • Dairy Milk Mint bars

  • Dairy Milk 8 chunk

  • Dairy Milk 1kg bar

  • Dairy Milk Buttons Easter Egg 105g

  • 10p Freddo bar

The free helpline number for Cadbury is 0800 818181.

Uneaten products should be returned to Cadbury Recall, Freepost MID20061, Birmingham B3O 2QZ, and a refund will be given.

Damn! I'm really pissed off at Cadbury.

I had to throw out my huuuuuuuge bag of Giant Buttons (yummy).

Personally, I think there will be more products than already listed recalled.

But my chocolate buttons, man! My chocolate buttons!! Is nothing safe anymore? *sigh*

Say it ain't so. I love Cadbury...yummy cream eggs! I don't think any of the salmonella infected ones made it across the pond anyway.

Never had chocolate buttons, I think m&m's has the monopoly over here.

bummer about the buttons though. ;p
