Not good at all :(
A chocolate Santa scandal has erupted at the Co-op after someone allegedly inserted small batteries into a number of the hollow figures.
The lithium batteries are potentially deadly if swallowed, and today the Co-op is urgently recalling 165,000 milk chocolate foil-wrapped Santas which have been bought in recent months.
The store said an investigation has established that the batteries were deliberately placed inside the hollow treats in at least two separate cases, however it is still not clear who was behind the sinister prank.
The relevant authorities will now join the Co-op to get to the bottom of the case.
Two customers have so far discovered batteries in their Santas. Both said they broke the chocolate to find the battery inside, suggesting the battery was put inside the chocolate before the hollow cavity was sealed.
