Um, so you might want to be careful about eating Dove chocolate this holiday season
Here’s something that’s not going to put you in the holiday spirit: bags of Dove chocolate are being recalled for a scary reason. If you’ve bought some in the last few months, think twice before unwrapping your next piece.
On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration issued a recall for bags of Dove Chocolate Assortment Snowflakes. Those are the purple bags filled with red, white, and blue pieces of chocolate, wrapped snowflake foil. Got one of those bags? There might be unlisted ingredients in there, like wheat, eggs, or peanuts. That’s because pieces of Snickers, Milky Ways, and Twixes made their way in by accident, and the bags failed to identify their ingredients as containing possible allergens.
What’s even scarier is that these bags of chocolate were sold in 30 different states across the country at an “unidentified retailer.” With locations in 30 states, it’s gotta be a huge chain, so something like Wal-Mart or Target. If you’ve purchased a bag anywhere over the past few months, take a look at the back of the bag. If the item number is 0139802, UPC number 400050521, and Lot Code numbers 537CG4PA30, 537DG4PA30, 538AG4PA30, 538AM4PA30, 541AG4PA20 and 542EM4PA20, you’ve got one the bags in question.
The good news is that the issues has been identified, and you can return the bag wherever you purchased it for a full refund. And then maybe grab a different bag of chocolate snowflakes, just to be on the safe side. Don’t want anyone getting sick right before the holidays.
