An allergy alert has been issued by Thorntons after a batch of chocolate was supplied to Tesco stores without a nut warning on it.

The Food Standards Agency has officially issued the warning to tell customers that Thorntons is recalling its Praline Melts due to the presence of nuts which has not been declared on the label.

It means the product is a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy to nuts, according to the agency.

The 200g Thorntons Praline Melts have a best before date of November 30 2015 and the batch affected was supplied to Tesco.

The chocolate may have an incorrect ingredients label on the back of the pack making a “may contain nuts” rather than “contains nuts” statement.

Customers who have bought to chocolate and have an allergy to nuts are advised not to eat it and should return it to the store where it was purchased for a refund.

The customer notice from Thorntons said: “Thorntons takes food safety very seriously and apologises that, in this instance, the product did not pass its quality standards and assurance procedures.

“No other products are affected.”
