The product was found at the premises of Jednota spotřební družstvo v Uherském Ostrohu, Náměstí 17. listopadu 1543 Strážnice.

The analysis carried out by CAFIA proved presence of allergen – peanuts amounting to 7,882 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg). The producer state on the labelling: “The product may contain traces of sesame, peanuts and further shell nuts.” With regard to the fact that the concentration of peanuts exceeds more than 300 times the amount approvable as “traces”, it is a foodstuff that may represent a significant health risk for persons with allergy or intolerance to peanuts.
