More Recalls of Dark Chocolate as Holidays Approach

Consumers who are allergic or sensitive to the milk allergen should be extra-careful in purchasing or consuming dark chocolate products as the holidays arrive over the next few weeks. After GKI Foods recalled their dark chocolate products on October 27, 2017, dozens of other secondary recalls have been announced in a cascading domino effect. These items all contain the milk allergen, which is not stated on the product labeling. We will continue to report upon these new recalls as they are issued.
