Recall: May contain traces of nuts

A product recall has been issued for the “all-time favourite” Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme chocolate blocks, due to the potential inclusion of gluten and wheat, and almonds, which are not declared on the product allergen statement.

Product importer A&W Hollier Wholesale Distributors issued a statement saying that the company takes product quality and safety seriously, and apologising for any inconvenience.

The Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème 113g chocolate block is available for sale at all ALDI stores, and is also sold at many C-stores that stock imported confectionery.
