Heatons is recalling a consignment of Toblerones because they contain egg which is not on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg. The consignment was sold with an incorrect over-stickered ingredients list, which omitted the ingredient egg white. The implicated consignment was only sold in Northern Ireland through Heatons.

About allergy alerts

Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold. Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk. When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert.
