Carbolite Foods Has Recalled Milk Chocolate Bars

Evansville, IN (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Carbolite Foods has recalled Carbolite brand 1.75-ounce milk chocolate bars.

Carbolite Foods is recalling Carbolite brand 1.75-ounce milk chocolate bars that bear the code T09002B, BB-4/03 stamped on the end of the wrapper on the reverse side of the product. People who have an allergy or a severe sensitivity to almonds run risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

This recall was initiated after several consumers called the company to report almonds in milk chocolate bar wrappers.
The product was shipped on multiple dates to distributors and food retail outlets in Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. No other code dates and Carbolite products are affected.

Carbolite Milk Chocolate bars do not ordinarily include almonds, so it is not listed as an ingredient on packages. Tree nut allergies affect less than 1% of all Americans. This product poses no problem if you are not allergic to tree nuts.

Consumers who have Carbolite 1.75-ounce milk chocolate bars with the code T09002B, BB-4/03 may obtain a full refund or replacement by calling Carbolite Foods Consumer Hotline at 1-(800) 524-4473.

Carbolite Foods is cooperating fully with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in this precautionary action.

The company said it has identified and corrected the cause of the mislabeling of the product in question and stressed that no other products or codes are affected.
