Easter might have just a little less chocolatey goodness this year, for the timid consumer of seasonal treats.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the fine people at Cadbury are warning against scoffing down the 39g Cadbury Caramilk, Caramilk Maple, and Caramilk Cafe chocolate eggs. It seems they may contain pieces of hard plastic — not tasty, and “may result in an injury”: or choking, perhaps?
“There has been one reported injury associated with the consumption of these products,” they say, pointing the finger at singles, three-packs, six-packs, and the big party packs of 12 eggs (with or without eggs of other flavours).
Well, phooey, I say!
Bring on those foil-wrapped little Easter eggs anyway!
I’ll happily lick my way around any foreign objects that may be hidden inside — as long as they don’t contain anything worse than bits of hard plastic!
