Food recall: Cadbury Old Gold Dark Chocolate

Posted by Daniel Palmer on 22nd July 2009

Cadbury this week initiated a recall of their Cadbury Old Gold Dark Chocolate for the second time this year.

The voluntary consumer level recall was instigated due to the possible presence of milk protein, which is not labelled on the packaging. Apart from this labelling irregularity, there is no other fault with the product.

“We are undertaking this recall as a precaution to protect consumer safety as well as to maintain our high quality standards,” the company advised. “We apologise for any inconvenience.”

The confectioner voluntarily recalled the same product last month due to the same labelling irregularity.
