Müller has recalled batches of its Cadbury Caramel Cheesecake and Cadbury Dairy Milk Cheesecake desserts due to the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the product.
The Food Standards Agency said in the recall notice that symptoms caused by Listeria can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.
In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis.
Müller said the recall was a “precautionary measure”, which affected its Cadbury Caramel Cheesecake and Cadbury Dairy Milk Cheesecake dessert two-packs with use-by dates of 5, 6 and 11 June.
Müller produces these products under licence from Cadbury and said this did not impact any other products it produces for Cadbury or any other Cadbury Cheesecake variants in the UK or other markets.
It added that consumers should return the product by contacting Müller directly, and that an extensive investigation was being carried out.
