Chocolate Pudding Recall before Thanksgiving 2014

Oh the food industry was doing so well for a few weeks with no chocolate related recalls and then today we get another one, this one for chocolate pre-prepared shelf stable pudding.  I don't know how many of you might buy this product but I've seen it in stores so I know it is a widely available brand. Remember to follow the links for fuller information and to use the contact information if you have purchased the product.
