Whittaker’s recall of batch of Almond Gold Mini Slabs

Whittaker’s recall of a single batch of Almond Gold Mini Slabs 180g


Whittaker’s are conducting a recall of a single batch of Almond Gold Mini Slabs 180g, with the batch number L0944 and a best before date of 4 April 2015, following the discovery of pieces of blue plastic in some products.

“Having completed an immediate investigation into the product that was returned to us, Whittaker’s acted immediately to identify and isolate the affected batch and to notify the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI),” says Holly Whittaker, Marketing Manager.

The plastic has been identified as having come from a piece of equipment that was damaged during production of that one batch.

“We believe we have narrowed down the exact timing of when the affected product was packed, but in line with our steadfast commitment to food quality and safety, Whittaker’s has chosen to voluntarily recall the entire batch produced that day,” says Holly Whittaker.

We have reviewed our production processes and implemented some immediate actions to minimise the risk of a similar situation occurring again, including investigating alternative components for the chocolate production line and implementing training to reinforce protocols and checks around visual inspections of production line equipment.

There have been no reports of harm but customers should not consume any Almond Gold Mini Slabs from this specific batch. Any customers that have Almond Gold Mini Slabs batch number L0944 with a best before date of 4 April 2015, which can be found on the back of the packaging, should return the product to their retailer for a full refund.

“We apologise unreservedly for any inconvenience or concern this causes our valued customers,” says Holly Whittaker.
