Brazilian officials confiscate caramel spread from Uruguay's training base at the World Cup.

Brazilian officials have reportedly removed South American caramel spread dulce de leche from the Uruguay camp at the World Cup because they do not have the correct documentation.

Thirty-nine kilograms of the treat were taken from the nation's training base in Sete Lagoas because it needed sanitary documentation due to its contents comprising condensed milk.

An official from the Brazilian agriculture department told Reuters that the caramel spread will be returned if the Uruguayan FA produce the "necessary documents".

Uruguay will take on England in the second of their Group D fixtures following an opening 3-1 defeat to Costa Rica last week.
