IKEA expands the ongoing chocolate recall by 6 further products

IKEA wants customers who have bought one or more of the affected chocolate products to be informed that these products are not suitable for persons allergic or sensitive to hazelnut and/or almond and are therefore being recalled by IKEA.

Product safety and quality are of highest priority to IKEA and the global recall concerns all best before dates of the affected products.

The presence of hazelnut and almond has been frequently and not only occasionally detected, which underlines that these chocolate products are not suitable for consumption by those who are allergic or sensitive to these allergens. The product information does not state this frequent presence clearly enough as the product labels only state “may contain”. Therefore IKEA is recalling these products globally. The products are safe for anyone not allergic or sensitive to almond and/or hazelnut.

Concerned customers are welcome to return the affected products for a full refund. Please either visit the Exchange and Returns department at the nearest IKEA store or call Customer Services on 0203 645 0010 to return the products. Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
