Manischewitz is recalling Manischewitz Dark Chocolate Coins because it 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 these products," the FDA states in its recall notice.
Officials noted a small amount of bags labeled as “Dark Chocolate Coins” contained Milk Chocolate Coins. This is a problem for all who are allergic to milk.
All dairy Milk Chocolate Coins are wrapped in Gold Foil within a Blue Netting and all non-dairy Dark Chocolate Coins are wrapped in Silver Foil within a Red Netting.
The Manischewitz Dark Chocolate Coins were distributed to stores nationwide but mostly sent to stores in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, during the weeks of September 26, 2023 through November 28, officials say.
Only packages bearing the Lot Code below may potentially have gold (dairy) coins in the “dark-chocolate tagged” bag.
"We immediately informed all retailers who had purchased this lot code about this recall and instructed them inspect their inventory or remove any potential affected product on their shelves," Manischewitz stated.
Officials warn all to not eat the recalled chocolate.
"Consumers who may have purchased this product are advised to inspect their product if gold foil coins are in the dark chocolate bags and discontinue use immediately. Consumers may return the product for credit or refund. If a consumer experiences an allergic reaction they are urged to report to a medical provider," Manischewitz adds.
