A Cadbury's Christmas-range chocolate has been urgently been recalled over concerns it may contain nuts. The Birmingham-based confectionary company has withdrawn Dairy Milk Little Robins chocolates from shops and supermarkets.

Certain batches of Dairy Milk Little Robins incorrectly contain some of the Dairy Milk Little Robins Daim Chocolate - which are also being sold as a different product. The Daim chocolate contains an almond-based ingredient.

The company says that as a precaution, it's withdrawing the chocolates from sale and is urging anyone who may have bought them and who has a nut allergy, to not eat them. Cadburys says people can take them back to where they bought them from for a full refund.

"The safety of our products and consumers are extremely important to us, and we apologise for any inconvenience.

We have been made aware that two batches of Cadbury Dairy Milk Little Robins (93g bags) may contain Cadbury Dairy Milk Little Robins Daim Chocolate by mistake.

As a precautionary measure we are withdrawing the product from sale, as the Daim chocolate product contains an almond-based ingredient.

We are advising any consumers who are allergic or intolerant to almonds, to check the product for the following date and batch codes before opening and not to consume it. Instead they can return it to the store they purchased it from for a full refund or contact our consumer care line."

– Mondelez spokesperson
