These nuts may contain. . . nuts

Thousands of packets of chocolate nuts sold to raise money for charity have been withdrawn because they don't have a warning that they contain nuts.

The 120g packets of chocolate-covered nuts are on sale at businesses across the country to raise funds for the Dublin Community Simon homeless charity.

However, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has ordered that they be removed immediately.

A spokesperson warned that the products were unsafe for those allergic to nuts or peanuts.

The recall relates to all batches of the 'Give Them Hope' chocolate-covered peanuts and mixed nuts.
