The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has issued a warning to consumers over counterfeit Wonka-branded chocolate bars.
It says there is an increase in reports that the counterfeit bars are for sale on the Irish market.
The FSAI says they may be unsafe to eat, as there is a possibility they may not have been produced in line with food safety, hygiene and/or food traceability legal requirements.
Some examples include a failure to provide an accurate ingredients list (including allergens), a false business name and address on the label, and the re-wrapping of various shop-bought or homemade chocolate bars in Wonka wrappers.
FSAI CEO Dr Pamela Byrne says they are working to remove them from sale.
"The FSAI is working closely with the food inspectors in the Environmental Health Service of the HSE to ensure any counterfeit Wonka branded chocolate bars where there is a known or suspected consumer health risk are removed from sale.
"Consumers have a right to safe food and counterfeit foodstuffs will be pursued using the legal powers available to us".
