Nestlé UK is withdrawing a range of Kitkat Original Milk Chocolate Bites Pouch Bags because of a possible packaging error.

The pouches could be wrongly packed with the company’s Kitkat Bites Peanut Butter variant, posing a risk to consumers with nut or peanut allergies.

The recalling has been issued by the UK’s Food Standards Agency on behalf of Nestlé, reported The Sentinel.

Nestlé UK said in a statement: “Although these packs are clearly labelled with ‘may contain peanuts and nuts’ there is a risk to anyone with a nut or peanut allergy who may consume their contents without realising.

"Although these products are otherwise safe to consume we are making this recall as a precaution."

“Although these products are otherwise safe to consume we are making this recall as a precaution.

“This does not affect any other KitKat products.”
