Lindt Lindor Milk Egg BagLindt has recalled its 16g Lindor Milk Easter Egg after some of the products were found to have been filled with peanut butter instead of the labelled milk filling.

The mislabelled eggs, which have a best before of 30 June 2011, have been distributed nationally through supermarkets and department stores, and are included in a large variety of Lindt’s Easter offerings, including the Lindt Lindor Assorted Egg Bags and Egg Tubes, the Lindt Gold Bunny and Friends Cube and Tin Tube, and Lindt Lindor egg-carton boxes. For a full list of recalled products, please see the images on the FSANZ website.

FSANZ has advised that any consumers who have a peanut allergy or intolerance should not consume this product, and that customers can return the products to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.

The products, which were made in the US, have also been exported to New Zealand, and will be recalled by the company there as well.
