This means that peanuts and nuts are not declared on the label, leading to a potential health risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts and/or peanuts.

The 104g bags have a batch code of 70720457V2 and are ‘Best before’ the end of December 2017.

No other Nestlé or Kitkat products are known to be affected.
