Thousands of Cadbury products recalled over fears they could be contaminated with listeria

Thousands of Cadbury products have been recalled at major supermarkets over fears they could be contaminated by listeria bacteria.

Symptoms of listeria poisoning include a high temperature, aches and pains, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.

The products being pulled from shelves are Cadbury dessert pots made by dairy and milk supplier Müller.

Müller said the following items have been recalled as a precautionary measure and only the below use by dates are affected.

The products being recalled are:

  • Cadbury Crunchie Chocolate Dessert 75g - May 17, 2023
  • Cadbury Flake Chocolate Dessert 75g - May 17, 2023
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons Chocolate Dessert 75g - May 18, 2023
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Chunks Chocolate Dessert 75g - May 18, 2023
  • Cadbury Heroes Chocolate Dessert 6x75g - May 18, 2023
  • Cadbury Daim Chocolate Dessert 75g - May 18, 2023

Supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Asda all sell some of these products.

If you've purchased one of these items, you should take it back to the store where you purchased it from for a full refund.

You won't need your receipt to get your money back.

Customers who are concerned can contact Müller on or 07354 835 893 for more information.

The Mirror has contacted Müller and Mondelez, the parent company of Cadbury, for comment.

For all product recalls, you can check the Food Standards Agency and Chartered Trading Standards Institute websites.

You should also notice recall notices in stores if they've pulled a product from shelves.

The update from Müller comes after another dairy company issued an urgent food recall for a variety of goat cheeses sold at supermarkets.

Lactalis UK & Ireland said its Cricket St Thomas Capricorn Goat Cheese, Somerset Capricorn Goat Cheese, and Co-op Goats Cheese products should be returned to supermarkets over possible listeria contamination.

The company said in a statement: "The health risk to the public remains low and individuals should only seek medical attention if they develop symptoms.

"If you have purchased the above products with a Use by Date of 26 May 2023, do not eat them, instead return them to the store where you bought them for a full refund.

"We apologise that it has been necessary to recall this product, and for the inconvenience caused."
