    Thorntons Recall Chocolate Santa


    Thorntons, beloved English chocolate, ice cream and coffee shop, has recently been the unhappy recipient of a recall notice. Known for passing out a free chocolate-of-the-day complimentary with café purchases, their chocolates are sold across the UK in grocery chains and in the Thorntons stores.

    Unfortunately for Christmas chocolate recipients, Thortons Hollow Milk Chocolate Jolly Santa was recalled. Retailing for over £6 over the holiday, the treat may contain small pieces of plastic originating from the Santa mould. In reference to the contaminant, a Thornton’s spokesperson states, “The piece of plastic is from a polycarbonate mould used in the manufacturing process of the Jolly Santa model.”

    Anyone in possession of Thorntons 200g Hollow Milk Chocolate Jolly Santa should return them to a Thorntons store for an alternative product or refund. Alternatively, recalled Santas can be mailed to Thorntons’ headquarters in Derbyshire.
    • Barcode Number: 5016346234721, all date codes.

    The recall was put out by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Thorntons is launching a full investigation into the matter: “As soon as this matter was brought to our attention we launched an immediate investigation to take corrective action including a full product recall.”
