These Chocolate products were known to be marketed, distributed and sold through retailers and distributors across all fifty states and in the company’s three Vermont retail stores.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated when a consumer reported finding brittle plastic pieces in a finished Chocolate product and notified Lake Champlain Chocolates. As a result of this reported defect, LCC has recalled all suspect Chocolate products currently on the market produced from July 2020 to January 2021. Consequently, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Chocolate products identified above.

In general, if bone, glass, metal, plastic and/or rubber fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Lake Champlain Chocolate products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Chocolates to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction.
