Cal Poly Recalls Chocolate Bars for Possible Contamination

Cal Poly has recalled six varieties of its chocolate candy bars for undeclared allergens and possible microbial contamination. The university makes chocolates at a food processing lab on campus that is managed by students. The chocolate may contain undeclared peanut, milk, or soy allergens and may have been exposed to bacteria, yeast, or mold. There have been no reports of illness or allergic reaction as of Monday, October 6, 2014.

Recall SignageThe bars were made on equipment that may have experienced product buildup. That means other ingredients such as peanuts could be in chocolate bars that were not made with those ingredients. The failure occurred on October 3, 2014.

The recall includes Cal Poly Chocolates Peanut Butter Crunch Bar with UPC number 7 45711 56310 8, Cal Poly Chocolates Peppermint Crunch Bar with UPC number 7 45711 56410 5, Cal Poly Chocolates Spicy Cayenne Bar with UPC number 7 45711 56710 6, Cal Poly Chocolates Pumpkin Spice Bar with UPC number 7 45711 56610 9, Cal Poly Chocolates Olallieberry Crisp Bar with UPC number 7 45711 56810 3, and Cal Poly Chocolates Coffee Crunch Bar with UPC number 7 45711 56510 2. The recall does not include their Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Bars.
