According to the FSAI warning, "Chocolate covered peanuts were found in a tub of product labelled as Chocolate Covered Raisins. This may make the above products unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of peanuts.

"As a precaution, SuperValu and Centra are recalling all current batches of the implicated raisin products, together with their products labelled as Chocolate Covered Peanuts in 325g tubs." All batches are to be treated as if they are affected, regarded of use-by date.

The FSAI has also included a photo of the products to help consumers identify them:
