Thorntons chocolate company has issued a statement asking anyone who purchased its personalised hollow dark chocolate Easter eggs to return them immediately. 

The products allow consumers to provide a message to loved ones written in icing on the front of the egg. However, the icing may contain milk, something which wasn't mentioned as part of the ingredients.
