Theo Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bars Recall

March 29, 2019

Information

Theo Chocolate of Seattle, WA is recalling 3oz Sea Salt 70% Dark Chocolate bars because they may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.  The affected product features lot code 3092529 with a Best-By date of 1/2020. The lot code and Best-By date are found on the back side of the bar’s packaging.

No illnesses have been reported to-date.  The affected product was distributed nationwide to select retailers from January 30th, 2019 to March 11th, 2019.  No other product sold under the Theo Chocolate brand is affected by the recall.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a small number of 3oz Salted Toffee Dark Chocolate bars were mis-labeled with 3oz Sea Salt 70% Dark Chocolate labels and shipped to select distributors, retail stores and consumers. The toffee contains butter, which is a milk allergen, but the 3oz Sea Salt 70% Dark Chocolate label does not declare milk.

If you have any of the products listed below, they should be thrown away or returned to your local Big Y for a full refund.
