Connecticut Consumer’s Allergic Reaction Prompts Recall of Chocolate Products

On Monday, the FDA initiated a recall of various chocolate products manufactured by Chocolate Decadence after a Connecticut consumer became ill from eating the chocolate.

Subsequent investigation revealed that the chocolate had been manufactured on production lines that had previously been used to process milk chocolate. It was thus determined that the products contain an undeclared milk allergen. Consumers who are allergic to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume these products.

According to the FDA release, the recalled products were distributed nationwide via the Internet and physical retail locations.
