Cadbury Easter eggs recalled

Chocolate maker Cadbury are taking some of their Easter eggs out of shops because they don't have the correct nut allergy labels.

Although the chocolate is perfectly safe for people without nut allergies, it's made on a line which also makes products with nuts in them.

That could be dangerous for people who are allergic to nuts.

So just to be safe, the eggs are being recalled. If you're worried you should call their helpline: 0800 818181.

The company reckons they might have to pull thousands of things off the shelves, but they don't know how much it'll cost them.

Cadbury spokesman Tony Bilsborough said: "They were particular batches of chocolate made on a line that also makes products with nuts in them, therefore there is a small risk and we felt it was at least important that we let nut allergy sufferers know about it because you cannot be too careful."

Last year the chocolate manufacturer pulled a million chocolate bars off the shelves after finding a bug called salmonella at a chocolate factory.
