Allergy Alert: Undisclosed Milk in Chocolates

Chocolate Decadence of Eugene, OR is recalling several types of chocolate products because they may contain undeclared milk.


People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume milk.

The recall was initiated when a Connecticut customer became ill after eating the chocolate. Subsequent investigation revealed that the chocolate had been manufactured on production lines that had previously been used to process milk chocolate.

The products were distributed nationwide through Internet sales and retail stores.

The recalled products include Chocolate Decadence chocolate bars, almond clusters, assorted fruit clusters, chocolate buttons (raspberry, espresso, pure dark, mint, peanut butter), truffles, fudge, and molded chocolates.

The smaller packages are in clear cellophane bags with uniquely identifying paper wrappers. The bars are wrapped in silver foil and wrapped in earth-toned paper wrappers (see  label at right).

There are no codes, best by dates or expiration dates listed on the retail packages.

Consumers who purchased Chocolate Decadence and who have allergy or severe sensitivity to milk are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Chocolate Decadence at 1-800-324-5018 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT or at the company’s website www.chocolatedecadence.com.
