After it has been selling out across the country!

Cadbury has recalled their popular Caramilk product due to pieces of plastic being found in their chocolate. 

In a statement released by Cadbury today, Caramilk chocolate bars have been “found to contain small, flexible pieces of food grade plastic as a result of a machinery fault during the manufacturing process”. 

The Caramilk bars containing the plastic may cause minor injury if consumed.

Anyone who has bought those Caramilk blocks are advised to return it to where they purchased it for a full refund. No receipt is required.

The recall comes after the chocolate has been selling out across Australia, with blocks being auctioned off on eBay for upwards of $20.

The blend of caramel and white chocolate was first on sale in the 1990s, before being discontinued after four years.
