LONDON, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Britain's Cadbury candy company is recalling thousands of chocolate bars because the labels lack a warning the product contains nuts.

The recall pertains only to the Dairy Milk Double Chocolate promotional packs bearing the phrase "Win a Prize and a Half," The Daily Mail reported Saturday.

Cadbury is investigating how the "may contain traces of nuts" message was left off the label, the British newspaper reported.

The chocolate is safe for those who do not suffer from nut allergies, the company said, apologizing to consumers for any inconvenience and adding there have been no customer complaints regarding the missing labels.

Cadbury was fined $2 million in July for a June 2006 salmonella outbreak, which left three people hospitalized and sickened dozens more. The outbreak was traced to a leaking pipe at the firm's factory in Marlbrook, Herefordshire.
