Chocolate bars recalled for undeclared hazelnut ingredients

Chuao Chocolatier is recalling chocolate bars that may contain undeclared hazelnuts - FDA

The products were sold nationwide

Chocoholics with nut allergies beware! Chuao Chocolatier is recalling a single production of Potato Chip mini bar .39oz/11 gram chocolate bars because some packages may contain undeclared hazelnut. 

That could be dangerous because people who are sensitive or have allergies to hazelnuts could be at risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

This recall is limited to one lot code (4022) of the Chuao Chocolatier Potato Chip mini chocolate bar (.39 oz. bar), which was sold nationwide, excluding Hawaii and Alaska, in retail stores and online. No other Chuao Chocolatier products are affected by this recall.

The item UPC is 872629006615 and the Best By Date is 22 February 2025. 

The recall was initiated after it was discovered hazelnuts were inadvertently added to the product during manufacturing and the lot produced was distributed in packaging that does not reveal the presence of hazelnuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by cross contamination on a piece of share equipment.

What to do

Consumers who are sensitive or have allergies to hazelnut should not eat this product and should discard any product they may have. 

Consumers should contact the company at (760) 814-6230 or to get more information about the recall.
