Dove Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collection Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Dove Chocolate Discoveries recalls some Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collections due to undeclared nuts, a known allergen. FDA: http://ht.ly/ohyRP

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm366291.htm

Additional information:Dove Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collection Recall
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • Dove Chocolate Discoveries Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collection, item #3265D, lot code #317DAIDS01

About Nut Allergies:
For some people, groundnuts (such as peanuts) and tree nuts (such as almonds and walnuts) can be a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to peanuts or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, Call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

About Wheat Allergies:
For some people, wheat (and wheat products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat. People with a wheat allergy would suspect products such as all breads, cakes, breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, beer, soy sauce and even condiments, such as ketchup, as having wheat unless specifically declared otherwise. Products that are heavily processed, cured, smoked or similarly prepared may also have wheat ingredients.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to wheat or wheat ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
