A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a certain item that is deemed to be unsafe for the consumer. The latest recall comes from retailers including Asda, Morrisons and Waitrose.
Waitrose & Partners is recalling its Belgian Dark Chocolate with Raisins and Almonds because of undeclared hazelnuts.
This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to hazelnuts.
Due to a packaging error, some packs contain Waitrose Belgian Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts instead.
The notice was posted on the Waitrose website as well as on the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
Waitrose said: “If you have an allergy to hazelnuts do not consume and package up the item and return the product to your local Waitrose & Partners branch for a refund.
“Contact: Waitrose Customer Care 0800 188 881, Option Four.
“We apologise that it has been necessary to recall this product and for the inconvenience caused.”
