2 Final Chocolate Recall Notice of January 2017

Well, damn! We couldn't end January 2017 without another recall of food and drinks that have chocolate or cocoa in them. At least now you know and you can protect yourself and your loved ones. Remember, also click on the links so you can see the full information we may not include here on The Chocolate Cult. My comments will be in ( ) when I think something is worth noting or thinking more deeply about in these recalls.
