Albert Heijn, Jumbo and Spar chocolate biscuits are remembered due to the possible presence of the metal | local

In consultation with the Federal Food Agency FAVV, Albert Heijn and Jumbo are recalling various types of chocolate biscuits from sale and withdrawing them from consumers. Department store chain SPAR is also recalling the cookies. This is because cookies not only contain pieces of chocolate, but may also contain pieces of metal, which can be harmful to your health.

At Albert Heijn, this concerns the following household brand products: AH Choc Chip Lemon, AH Choc Chip Double Choc and AH Choc Chip Red Velvet, each of which has a minimum expiration date of 09/05/2024. Products were on shelves from 07/12/23 to 02/24/15.

At Jumbo, this relates to the products Jumbo Chocolate Cookies, which have a best before date of 05/09/24 and EAN 8718452181339, and Jumbo Double Chocolate Cookies, which have a best before date of 13/09/24 and EAN 8718452671465.

SPAR is recalling its signature triple chocolate-flavored cookies.

Biscuit manufacturer Merba from Oosterhout in Brabant reported that the metal flakes were too small to be detected by detectors on production lines. The company said: “The metal particles found have different sizes, and are mainly thin and long, which poses a potential risk to human health if consumed.”

Supermarket chains ask their customers not to consume the products and return them to the store. They will be compensated appropriately.
