article imageNestle recalls chocolate bars from 8 countries as a precaution

By Marcus Hondro     Mar 24, 2013 in Health
The Nestle food company announced Friday they recalled thousands of chocolate bars from 8 countries because plastic may be inside some. Nestle says a piece of plastic broke off in their Bulgarian factory and fell into the chocolate.
Seven people in the U.K. complained of having found plastic in a chocolate treat but no one has complained of having becoming ill and that is the only country that has had anyone find plastic in a bar. A spokeswoman for the company, Odette Forbes, told the U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail that the recall was ``a precautionary measure``

A notice the company put up on their website reads in part: ``We have initiated a voluntary recall of four Kit Kat Chunky special varieties (48g size bars in Peanut Butter, Hazelnut, Chocolate Fudge and Caramel flavors) and Kit Kat Chunky Collection Giant Egg.`` The notice said that the countries from which chocolate was recalled are ``the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Austria, Singapore, Philippines and Canada.``
Here are details of the best before dates of the bars recalled: the choc fudge and hazelnut bars with a best before date of between September and October 2013; the caramel bars with a best before date of June or July 2013; the peanut butter bars with the best before date of between September 2013 and February 2014.``
There`s no indication why Nestle did not know the plastic had fallen off and act accordingly when it happened. They said no other Nestle product was affected and apologized to their customers.
