Cadbury fans are being urged not to eat not to eat six Müller yoghurts due to fears the products are contaminated with listeria.
The dairy brand Müller has taken the precautionary step of recalling batches of various Cadbury dessert products because of the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria poisoning is usually caught from food, causing unpleasant symptoms similar to the flu like fever, chills, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some groups are more vulnerable to the infection, including people aged 65 and over, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.
Anybody who has bought the Müller Cadbury products have been instructed to return them to the shop they were purchased for a refund even if they don't have a receipt.

According to the NHS, the infection is mainly a problem with chilled, ready-to-eat foods, such as dairy products made from unpasteurised milk, cooked sliced meats and cured meats, and some pre-prepared fruit.
The Food Symptoms Agency writes: "Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea. Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems.
