The lot numbers are printed on the back of each retail bag. The chocolate containing products were shipped to retailers and distributors from June 14, 2016 – October 30, 2017  throughout the United States. 

This recall was issued as a precaution because our firm received a notice from GKI Foods, LLC recalling their dark chocolate cashews and dark chocolate almonds for an undeclared milk allergen.

No illnesses have been reported to date in association with the recall and no other chocolate almond and cashew containing products under the brands are being recalled to date.

Consumers who have any remaining product with these lot numbers should not consume it, but rather should discard it. Consumers should retain their store receipts, packaging reflecting lot numbers or any other proof of purchase they may have or return to the store for a refund. Retailers and consumers with questions may call Millie Carra at United Natural Trading, LLC customer service at 732-650-9905, which is open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (EST) Monday - Friday.
