KitKat Chunky special varieties voluntary recall

Mar 22, 2013
Vevey, Switzerland

As a precautionary measure, we have initiated a voluntary recall of four KitKat Chunky special varieties (48g size bars in Peanut Butter, Hazelnut, Chocolate Fudge and Caramel flavours) and KitKat Chunky Collection Giant Egg in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Austria, Singapore, Philippines, Canada and Hong Kong.

The recall affects only the 48g size bars of the four special KitKat Chunky varieties listed above. No other Kit Kat product is affected.

Seven consumers in the UK have told us they found a piece of plastic in the product. So far, we have not received any other similar complaints, but to avoid any risk whatsoever to our consumers, we have decided to voluntarily recall the entire production of these four KitKat Chunky varieties and KitKat Chunky Collection Giant Egg manufactured from September 2012. 

The affected products are predominantly sold in the UK, with small amounts also sold in Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Austria, Singapore, Philippines, Canada and Hong Kong. They are not sold by Nestlé in any other country.

The safety and quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for the company. We sincerely apologise to our consumers for any inconvenience caused by this voluntary recall.

If you are concerned about this issue, contact your local Nestlé Consumer Services.
