Tesco Ireland have issued an urgent recall on one of their own brand lines following safety concerns.
A batch of their finest* Chocolate Cake is said to contain undeclared ingredients which pose a danger to certain consumers who suffer from nut allergies or intolerances.
It is understand that one batch of the range was incorrectly packed with carrot cake which contains walnuts.
The Food Safety Authority confirmed the recall, saying: "Tesco is recalling a batch of its finest* Chocolate Cake as some of it was incorrectly packed with carrot cake."
"The carrot cake contains walnuts which are undeclared on the label.This may make the batch unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of walnuts."
The batch in question is numbered D32/18003 and has a best before date of January 17 2018.
Tesco advises customers who have an allergy to walnuts and have purchased the affected product to return it to store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.
We all love chocolate. And to be honest, we'd eat a big chocolate cake everyday if our hips would allow us.
But there's a new controversial ingredient which one baker believes is the key to a "chocolate nirvana."
Are you ready for it? … You're going to squirm… OK, it's mayonnaise.
"Now before you go and turn your nose up, I want you to understand why mayonnaise is used to make some of the finest chocolate cake you'll ever experience," said Mirabile, an American baker.
Mirabile also explained to Country Living that the sandwich spread acts as a substitute for the oil that's normally used in chocolate cake. It balances out the sugar and stops the cake from becoming too dry.
Well, do you think you would be brave enough? We're ready for "chocolate nirvana," but we're not so sure about mayo.
