The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN), part of the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, has warned those with milk intolerance or allergy that seven batches of rolls filled with Dulcesol cocoa from Spain are not labeled as a precautionary measure for traces of milk.
As a precautionary measure, AESAN recommends that people with a milk allergy or intolerance who may have the above product at home avoid consuming it. However, consumption of this product does not pose a risk to the rest of the population.
AESAN became aware of this lack of labeling through the Coordinated System for the Rapid Exchange of Information (SCIRI) and an alert from the health authorities of the Region of Valencia.
The discovery was made as part of a company self-control exercise, during which the incident was reported to the authorities, in accordance with legislation and in order not to make unsafe food available to the public.
The product details are Dulcesol brand cocoa-filled sticks, three units packed in a plastic bag. The batch numbers are 04G, 11G, 21G, 01H, 12H, 25H, 31H, with different expiry dates. Unit weight: 141 g.
According to the information available, the initial distribution of the product took place in the Spanish regions of Andalusia, Canary Islands, Catalonia, Basque Country, Extremadura, Galicia and Murcia, although it could not be ruled out that there could be some redistribution to other areas.
