The supermarket is offering any customers affected a full refund and said in a notice: “Some boxes may contain packets of vitality mix instead of Peanuts and Raisins.

“Vitality mix contains almonds, brazil nuts and pistachio nuts - as well as gojii berries, blueberries and pumpkin seeds - which are not declared as ingredients on the box.
