The Co-op is recalling chocolate Santas after batteries were found inside two of them.
The retailer said there were two “alleged tampering incidents” involving the hollow milk chocolate figures, which sell for £1.
It has informed the police and Food Standards Agency and started a national product recall.
The Co-op has sold 165,000 of the German-made Santas, which are available from other retailers, and has advised people not to eat them.
No other products are affected.
The chocolates that had been subject to tampering were bought at two different locations, one in Suffolk and one in Essex.
The Co-op said customers with one of these products should not eat it, but call the company’s customer relations team for a full refund.
