The Organic Nut Butter Cups salted Pistachio from KoRo are affected by a recall. Due to a production error, consuming the sweet snack can be dangerous.
Everything in butter? Manufacturer KoRo can't say the same about its Bio-Nut Butter Cups at the moment. Because during the production of this sweet snack, the producer made a fatal mistake, which in extreme cases can even have fatal consequences. For this reason, KoRo Handels GmbH is now warning all fans of organic chocolate against consuming the cups in the salted pistachio flavor, as HEIDELBERG24 knows.
Cashew allergy sufferers beware: KoRo product can cause allergic shock
It's not always what it says on the tin. According to the company, it cannot be ruled out that the wrong content "Cashew Strawberry" is in the packaging and therefore cashew is not listed on the allergen label. The batch affected is the best-before date (BBD) 25.12.2024.
Especially for cashew allergy sufferers, caution is advised here. "The products are easily identifiable. The best-before date can be found on the packaging "EXP 25.12.2024" according to the following pattern. In addition, the wrong contents can be recognized by the pink filling," explains KoRo. An overview of other recalls can be found here.

KoRo Recall Due to Incorrect Filling: How Food Allergies Manifest Themselves
The extent of the allergic reaction can vary greatly from person to person. Food allergies manifest themselves in reactions of the mucous membrane, for example in the form of swelling of the mucous membrane throughout the mouth, nose and throat and swelling of the tongue.
Symptoms in the gastrointestinal area include nausea, vomiting, flatulence and diarrhea. However, food allergies can also lead to reactions of the respiratory tract with narrowing of the bronchi and skin (eczema, itching and hives). In the worst case, it can lead to life-threatening anaphylactic shock.
I bought the KoRo Nut Butter Cups – what should I do?
If you would like to make a complaint about the product, you can either return it to the appropriate point of sale or send an e-mail to email@example.com with the subject "Recall KoRo Nut Butter Cups Salden Pistachio" and a photo of the packaging showing the best-before date. It is essential to include the bank details in the e-mail so that the manufacturer can refund the purchase amount.

Chocolate manufacturer KoRo makes fatal mistake – not an isolated case
Again and again it happens that defects, errors or even harmful substances are found in products of the food industry. Even more curious faux pas like this one, in which a completely different product ends up in the packaging than is apparent from the outside, are not an isolated case.
Although such serious production errors are rather rare, they do happen. This was also the case recently with the manufacturer NABA Feinkost, which warned of the existing danger of a wrong dish in a ravioli can. (mos)
