Heart-Shaped Chocolate Boxes Recalled
WASHINGTON -- One company that sells heart-shaped gift boxes of chocolate is voluntarily recalling 12,000 units.
Fannie May Confections Brands, Inc. and the Federal Drug Administration have released the recall notice after one piece of candy in the box contains peanuts -- a known allergen -- yet the food ingredient label on the box does not state the product contains peanuts.
According to the FDA, people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they come in contact with or consume this product.
The product being recalled is a 4-ounce, red heart-shaped gift box measuring 5 1/4 by 5 in size that contains 8 pieces of assorted chocolates including one caramel/peanut candy. The red heart-shaped box has a rose motif foil paper with the name Fannie May in silver lettering along the right side of the box and a label in the upper left stating Fannie May Assorted Chocolates NET WT. 4 oz. 113g. The back of the box has a full nutritional label which also states: This product has been produced on equipment shared with peanuts, treenuts, soybean, milk, eggs and wheat.
The item is identified as SKU #77202 with the UPC number on the label of 0 52745 96000 2. Lot information on this product is 13344, 13345, 13361, 14010, and 14014.
The 12,000 boxes of chocolates were available for sale beginning January 10 in up to 450 drug stores, grocery stores and gift shops in the Midwestern Region of the United States that included Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri and Indiana. Retailers that sold the product include, but are not limited to, Walgreens, Hallmark Gift Shops, Jewel Grocers and other independent retailers. This particular gift box of assorted chocolates was not available nor offered for sale in any of the 100 Fannie May retail stores, or through the Fannie May website located at: www.fanniemay.com disclaimer icon.
To date there has been one reported incident of an individual who had an allergic reaction who was treated and released from further medical care. Fannie May says it is not aware of any other incidences, nor have there been any other reported illnesses.
This voluntary recall does not affect any other products from Fannie May Chocolates.
Consumers that have purchased the Fannie May 4.0 oz. red heart-shaped box of assorted chocolates are urged to dispose of the product.
Fannie May is working in cooperation with the FDA. Information on the product recall can be found on the home page of the Companys website located at: wwwfanniemay.com disclaimer icon. Consumers with questions may contact a dedicated customer service representative at the Company by dialing 330-494-0833 Extension 193, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. 5:30 p.m. EST or email email@example.com.
