Chocolate Recalls January 26, 2014

Every Sunday since the start of 2014 I've had to share another chocolate related food/drink recall with you, Sisters and Brothers.  If this is a sign of the year ahead of it, I don't think it's a good one.  As always look at the links and investigate further if you have purchased on used the products mentioned.

The voluntary recall was initiated by Araya after reviewing with the FDA the current product labels and determining that the allergen declaration was not complete since it did not state all the allergens present in the facility. The firm also uses peanuts in some products; however, peanuts are declared as an allergen on all product labels and are not part of this recall.
Customers who purchased any of the recalled products listed above and are allergic or have a severe sensitivity to wheat, tree nuts, milk protein or soy, please do not consume the products. Please discard them.
