RECALLED: Dove Chocolate Snowflakes

HACKETTSTOWN, New Jersey – A recall was issued on Friday for Dove-brand chocolate snowflakes sold at Wal-Mart that might be mixed in with Snickers, Milky Way or Twix pieces.

They could be dangerous for customers with peanut allergies who aren’t expecting the bag to contain nuts, so the manufacturer is recalling about 6,700 packages sold in the U.S. It could also affect customers with milk or wheat allergies.

For people with life-threatening allergies, it’s a significant concern. But recalls for undeclared allergens are not uncommon.

In 2014 there were 43 recalls for undeclared allergens. That’s out of a total of 94 recalls of all food products — everything from meat and poultry to produce and other kinds of food.

Mars Chocolate North America said no “adverse reactions” have been reported, but the company became aware of the issue when a customer found a Snickers inside a bag of Dove Chocolate Assortment Snowflakes.

The chocolates were sold only at Wal-Mart stores in 24-ounce bags, according to CNN.

The candy company is working to remove the products from store shelves and is encouraging customers with potential allergy issues to return them for a refund.

The items were sold between September 19 and December 1.
They have an Item No. of 10139802 and a UPC No. 400050521. The lot codes of the recalled producer are 537CG4PA30, 537DG4PA30, 538AG4PA30, 538AM4PA30, 541AG4PA20 and 542EM4PA20.
