Boots is voluntarily recalling specific batches of a Gü mug and chocolate gift set which contains 70% cocoa chocolate truffles. A heat processing error resulted in the potential for product spoilage by mould growth in the truffle fillings.  No other batches or products are affected by this recall in the Republic of Ireland*. Boots has issued in-store notices and letters to “Advantage Card” holders who purchased the gift set requesting the return of implicated batches.  Customers can contact Boots customer care line on 1890 708091.

No action is required by official agencies.

*Note: the same batch codes of another gift set, “Gü Sweet Stand and Chocolate Set” are also implicated and referred to in the Boots customer notifications, but none of these were sold from Boots stores in the Republic of Ireland.
