Batteries found in supermarket chocolate

Co-op issues product recall

A supermarket with several local outlets has issued an urgent product recall notice over seasonal food products.

It comes after two hollow milk chocolate Santa figures, sold in Co-op stores in the south of England, were found to contain small batteries.

Around 165,000 of them have been recalled nationwide.

It's thought to be the result of product tampering.

The batteries can pose a potentially lethal risk to children if swallowed.

If you've purchased a chocolate Santa from any of the seven Co-op branches in the Island, you should return the product to receive a full refund.

The supermarket's customer relations team can be reached on Freephone 0800 0686 727.
