We have been informed that the police are currently investigating reports of people falling ill after consuming chocolate wrapped in gold packaging over the weekend. There have been some allegations that this chocolate is laced with drugs, tests are in the process of being carried out but at present there is no evidence to support claims that the chocolate bars contained any illicit drugs. The chocolate bars were reportedly sold in orange ‘Cali-Gold’ boxes and golden wrappers on Saturday (25 November) in Mansfield Market.
Anyone who bought any of this chocolate is asked to contact Nottinghamshire Police immediately on 101, quoting incident 180 of 26 November 2023. If you have already eaten this chocolate and developed symptoms, please call NHS 111 or contact your GP. The small number of people who became unwell have fully recovered. Investigations are ongoing about what may have caused the illness. If you have purchased ‘Cali-Gold’ chocolate from Mansfield Market, you should not consume the product or give it to anyone else and should hand it to the police.
