Undeclared Allergens Recalled in Another Chocolate Bar Recall

There was a recall this week for dark chocolate bars made by Groove Chocolate and Daniel Chocolates. Canadian Food Inspection Agency Announced the removal of the affected items on July 28 due to the possibility of unlabeled milk being present.

Daniel Chocolates, 66% Cocoa Dark Chocolate 85g with the UPC 64059002624; Groove Chocolate Dark Chocolate 66% 85g with the UPC 607987458800; Groove Chocolate Dark Chocolate 66% 85g with the UPC 6579877458800; Groove Chocolate Dark Chocolate 66% With Sea Salt 85g with the UPC 627987458824.

The recall affected products were sold in Alberta and British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario. CFIA testing results were used to trigger the recall. There have been no adverse reactions reported.

According to Mayo ClinicMilk allergy symptoms can be mild to severe. They include wheezing and vomiting, hives and digestive problems. Anaphylaxis can be fatal and is another serious reaction that may be triggered by milk allergies.

CFIA is conducting a food safety inquiry that may lead to additional recalls. CFIA is also working to ensure that any recalled products are not placed on the market.

The company recommends that the products not be used, sold, or distributed and that they be thrown out or returned back to their source. CFIA can also be reached at 1-613-723-342, (local or international), or toll-free at 1-800-442-2342 for Canada and the U.S. The agency’s email contact is [email protected]

Recently, chocolate bars were recalled in the U.S. due to a completely different reason. Due to potential salmonella contamination, Strauss Israel voluntarily recalled its Elite-brand chocolate items in April. These items were sold to U.S. customers through Amazon and other retailers. After discovering salmonella, an Israeli confectionery factory recalled these products.
