May 2, 2023

A total of 3 Cadbury chocolate dessert products are recalled due to potential listeria monocytogenes contamination: Cadbury crunchie and Cadbury flake (use by date for both products- 18 May 2023) and Cadbury dairy milk button (use by date- 18 May 2023). The pack size of all these recalled products is 75 grams. The implicated batches were sold in some Lidl stores and recall notices will be displayed at point-of-sale. Retailers are asked to remove implicated batches from sale and display recall notices at point-of-sale, and consumers are advised not to eat such products of implicated batches.
Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause mild flu-like symptoms or gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications. Some people are more vulnerable to the infection, such as pregnant women, babies, and people with weakened immune systems. The incubation period for listeria monocytogenes infection is usually 3 weeks but can range between 3 and 70 days.
