Co-op Chocolate Rabbits Recalled And Police Investigation Launched After Battery Found Inside

Post by Guest on Thu Feb 02, 2017 8:32 am

Thousands of chocolate bunny rabbits are being recalled by the Co-op after an alleged tampering incident saw a battery found inside one of the figures. A “button” battery was found inside one of the hollow chocolates, which are on sale for £1, in Nottingham, prompting fears of deliberate sabotage. The find has prompted the Co-op to recall the treats, more than 3,000 of which have already been sold nationwide.

The battery was found by Tammy-Louise Dundon, from Bulwell, who bought one of the rabbits for her daughter, Sophia Wood. The battery was found inside a £1 chocolate rabbit
She told the Nottingham Post: “My daughter bit the ears off and shouted ‘what’s this?’

“I was just like ‘oh my God’. How much damage do these batteries do? I’ve heard kids have died from eating them. They can get stuck in the oesophagus or can be corrosive.”

Cases of children being left with serious - and sometimes fatal - injuries after swallowing batteries such as the one found have risen over the years. This is the latest incident in which products have been targeted and contaminated at the retailer, Co-op have said. The battery find is being treated as a criminal matter, with both the National Crime Agency and police involved.

The Food Standards Agency has also been notified and is assisting.

Its pretty shocking when we read of things like this, especially in chocolate aimed at the kids market.
I cant think how a battery can "accidentally" get inside a chocolate bunny.

It makes us realise how much we depend and trust in the food preparations in this country.

I have NEVER eaten Kentucky fried chicken or Dominoes pizzas after seeing disgusting things in their products.

What concerns me is who is behind this and why Syl?
Clearly someone must be involved in the manufacturing or logistics side of the process, if of course the claim is true. Needs further investigation. If true it would be very worrying indeed,

I have never been on a food production line, but I imagine in some factories it would be quite easy to add something to a product.

It makes us realise how dependant we are on strangers every time we eat something we have not grown and prepared ourselves.

What does a chocolate bunny need a battery for? Gonna run and hide before the missus eats his ears?
