The affected batch is 900g, and has a best before date of 26 December 2020.
Advising shoppers on what to do, the FSA continued: “Lidl GB is recalling the above product. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product.

The FSA detailed: “Waitrose & Partners is recalling Waitrose No.1 Dominican Republic Milk Chocolate 49 percent because some products contain almonds, hazelnuts (nuts) and soya which are not mentioned on the label.
“Due to a packaging error, some products contain Waitrose No.1 Orange & Almond Chocolate instead.
“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to almonds, hazelnuts (nuts) and/or soya.”
Batch code 0259 with a best before end of November 2021 is affected.
Lidl has recalled a couple of products sold in stores as they could be dangerous for customers.
Those who have been shopping in stores have been urged to check their cupboards.
The discount retailer has warned customers about Cologran Sucralose sweetener tablets.
Some batches of the product could contain aspartame (E951) which is not listed on the label.
Lidl has also urged shoppers to check their cupboards for another sweetener product – Cologran Stevia sweetener tablets.
