According to Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) the two products have been pulled from shelves “due to the potential presence of foreign matter (plastic)”.

Customers who have bought these two products have been warned not to eat the chocolate as “food products containing plastic may cause injury if consumed”.

Those who have purchased the chocolate are advised to return it to the store they purchased it from for a full refund.

For more information on the recall customers are advised to contact Kmart on 1800 124 125.
