Moonstruck Chocolate Has Recalled Toffee Truffle

Portland, OR (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Moonstruck Chocolate Co. has recalled their Moonstruck Chocolatier Classic 9 pc., Classic 16 pc. and 12 pc. Spring Collection boxes. Each of these boxed collections contains a single Toffee Truffle with a small flower decoration appliqué found to contain undeclared egg whites. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg whites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The recalled Toffee Truffle can be found in Moonstruck's Classic 9 pc., Classic 16 pc., and 12 pc. Spring Collection boxes distributed through retail stores located in Illinois, Indiana, Connecticut, Oregon, and California, and nationwide mail-order service. The product will have a "best enjoyed by date" up through July 19, 2002. Less than fourteen hundred boxed collections are affected by the recall.

There have been no reported illnesses to date.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing egg whites (small flower decoration on the Toffee Truffle) was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg whites. Subsequent investigation indicated a problem with the company's reevaluation process of outsourced material ingredient contents.

Current packaging of this product has been corrected with the proper labeling of "contains egg whites." Requests for refunds or replacement product will be honored.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at: 1-800-557-MOON.
