Cadbury have announced a recall on a number of Caramilk bars just weeks after their re-release became national news with fans scrambling to find, and hoard, the limited edition bars.
The chocolate manufacturer is offering refunds to customers after “small, flexible pieces of food-grade plastic” were discovered in several of the chocolate bars.
Only products with best before dates 17/01/2019 and 21/01/2019 are included in the recall notice, which says that while they don’t pose a serious risk, they could cause injury if consumed.
Cadbury’s re-release last month of the retro bar caused fans to go into meltdown, spending as much as $30 on eBay just to get their hands on a single block.
‘I like to live dangerously,’ commented one Caramilk fan.
Another added: ‘You can't have my Caramilk sorry I'll take the risk!!’
Once commenter took it further, jokingly suggesting that there is more to this recall notice than meets the eye:
‘They’re trying to take them back because they missed out on getting some at Cadbury’s ... It’s a conspiracy people!’
