Valentine Chocolate Recall of February 2017

We end February 2017 with one recall to share. These might have been a gift you bought to give to a child or perhaps an adult in your life for Valentine's Day.

Plastic Heart Tubes with Chocolate Lentils

Bee International, Inc. of Chula Vista, CA is recalling its 1.7oz. Plastic Heart Tubes with Chocolate Lentils because they may contain undeclared milk protein. People who have allergies to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The recalled “Chocolate Lentils” were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through food distributors.

The product comes in a 1.7oz clear plastic tube marked with Best Before April 2019 on the label and bearing the UPC 0-73563-00805-9. It is a Valentine item consisting of chocolate lentils packed inside the clear plastic tube, with a heart shaped topper as a lid.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing product was used during the packaging of the product. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased 1.7oz. Plastic Heart Tubes with Chocolate Lentils with Best Before April 2019 are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-421-6465, Monday-Friday from 7:30am-4:00pm, PST.
