Customers are advised to return the products to stores for a full refund.

The Food Standards Agency said: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to almonds (nuts) do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

What is a product recall?

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food.

In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued.

This provides local authorities with details of specific actions to be taken on behalf of consumers.
