The Co-op recalls two batches of its own-brand Fairtrade Peruvian Dark Chocolate with Dried Sweetened Cranberries due to undeclared milk
Ref CC - 2012
Co-operative Truly Irresistible Fairtrade Peruvian Dark Chocolate with Dried Sweetened Cranberries
Due to a packaging error, two batch codes of the above product contain milk chocolate bars instead of dark chocolate, resulting in incorrect allergen labelling. This makes the product a potential health risk for people who are allergic or intolerant to milk or milk constituents.

Best before date: 01 February 2013
