Multiple Allergen Alert – FSA issues warning about counterfeit Wonka Bars

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a warning about counterfeit Wonka chocolate bars in circulation.

The bars are potentially being produced by an unlicensed or unregistered business, and may not be adhering to the standard hygiene, labelling and traceability laws.

This product should be avoided by all consumers, but particularly by people with food allergies or intolerances. Testing on some bars removed from sale has confirmed the contents contained allergens not listed on the label.

Any Wonka-branded chocolate which does not feature the official ‘Ferrero’ or ‘Ferrara Candy Company’ trademarks on the label is likely to be a counterfeit product. There is no way to know if it is safe to eat.
