The recall was initiated after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency discovered that this dark chocolate product contained milk, was distributed in packaging that did not list the presence of milk.

 

This does not affect the product's "KOSHER PAREVE" status.

Sale and distribution of these products have been halted, until FDA and our company is certain that the packaging of this product is corrected to list the right allergy information.
