It seems like Health Canada recalls are more and more common and this time, we are dealing with chocolate! The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has recalled two brands of chocolate because of undeclared milk.
Health Canada has revealed that Fielding Group Ltd. is recalling Made Chocolates brand 73% Dark Chocolate Bar and QC brand 73% Cacao Dark Chocolate Bar from the marketplace because both products did not mention milk on the ingredient label.
The CFIA is urging consumers to double-check their recent chocolate purchases and check the UPC codes for the Made and QC brands to determine if you have a recalled product on your hands. The UPC of Made Chocolates is 063891603514 and the UPC of the QC brand is 063891603736.
According to Health Canada, the recalled products were sold in gift baskets in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec and “may have been distributed in other provinces and territories.”
The recall was first triggered by a consumer complaint, however, no reactions related to any of the recalled chocolate products have been reported.
Health Canada is urging consumers with milk allergies not to consume the recalled products as they could cause a “serious or life-threatening reaction.”
If you have either of the two recalled products, the CFIA advises that it should be discarded immediately or returned to the point of purchase.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is currently conducting a food safety investigation and verifying that industry is actively removing the recalled products from the marketplace.
