Chukar Cherries Expands Ultra Dark Chocolate Recall for Undeclared Milk

Chukar Cherries recallChukar Cherries of Prosser, Washington is expanding its recall of Ultra Dark Chocolate products because they contain undeclared milk. People who have a milk allergy or severe sensitivity should not eat these products as they run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they do. People with lactose intolerance also could become ill if they eat this product.

The recalled products include:

  • Ultra Dark Chocolate Black Forest Cherries, UPC 0 11261 23907, best by date 8 11/2019
  • Ultra Dark Chocolate Cocoa Pecan, UPC s 0 11261 22507, best by date 1 10/2019
  • Organic Ultra Dark Vanilla Chocolate Rainier Cherries, UPC 0 11261 27207, best by date 5 10/2019
  • Organic Ultra Dark Orange Chocolate Tart Cherries, UPC 0 11261 27507, best by 6 10/2019

They were sold in 7.5 ounce packages at retail stores in 20 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Washington. The cherries are sold in plastic pouches.

At the time of the recall, no illnesses had been reported. The problem was that ultra dark chocolate containing milk chocolate was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk.

The company has since revised labels to include the allergen advisory statement. If you purchased this product and are allergic to milk or are lactose intolerant, do not eat it. Throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.
