Recalled Chocolate Candies
Pimlico Confectioners, which has already issued a recall for some of its products, is expanding it to include Keats London Vegan Irish Cream Truffles and Keats London Vegan Hazelnut Dark Chocolate as they contain milk. Milk is not mentioned on the ingredient label in its packaging. Therefore, the products pose a potential health risk to anyone allergic or intolerant to milk or milk constituents. The current Product Recall Information Notice has been updated to include additional products and replace earlier versions, per Food Agency Standards.
For consumers who have purchased the products and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, the company encourages all not to consume them. Instead, the company is asking consumers to return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. Further information can be obtained by contacting the company at [email protected] or 02032394088.
By Mayo Clinic, a milk allergy is one of the most common food allergies in children in particular. A reaction is caused simply by drinking milk. Symptoms of the reaction include hives, wheezing, itching around the lips, swelling of the lips, tongue or throat, coughing and vomiting. Other symptoms may include abdominal cramps, runny nose, and diarrhea that may include blood, which may take longer to develop. In some cases, milk can cause anaphylaxis, which requires immediate medical help. Symptoms range from mild to severe, depending on the patient.
Several food recalls have taken place in the past few months alone. Some include pizza, pork sausage, salmon, sandwiches, ice cream, pasta, and even dog food.
