Undeclared Milk Prompts Recall of Cafe Tasse Belgian Chocolate Bar

Posted on

Cafe Tasse S.A. is recalling its Noir Belgian Chocolate Bar. The 1.58 ounce Cafe Tasse brand chocolate bar contains milk, but it does not say as much on the label. The candy was sold at retail locations in Virginia, Washington, Massachusetts, and California from January to April of this year.  The items have an expiration date of September 15 of next year.  Consumers are being advised to be on the lookout for lot code L113033249 and a bar code of 54000219 505504.  The candy bar comes in a gold foil package wrapped in black paper.

For people with allergies to milk, the product poses a threat of causing severe reactions.  No incidents of this nature have been reported at this time, and the seven retailers and single distributor of the chocolate bars have been informed of what’s going on.  11 cases in total were found to be compromised.

Cafe Tasse discovered the defect in Belgium, but many of the candy bars had already been imported into the United States by the Wellesley, Massachusetts-based Belgium’s Chocolate Source.  All the inventory that was found to be improperly packaged has since been destroyed by the company.

Customers can return the chocolate bars to the store for a full refund. They are also being advised to get in contact with the importer, as opposed to the distributor, should they have any questions or concerns.
