Trader Joe’s Recalls Two Chocolate Products

(CN) - Trader Joe's recalled all of its chocolate orange sticks and chocolate raspberry sticks, saying the products could pose an allergy risk because they might have more milk than indicated.

Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange Sticks and Chocolate Raspberry Sticks - packaged in 18-ounce, clear tubs and distributed in stores nationwide - may contain more than the "traces of milk" stated on the label, the company said.

The recall was initiated after Trader Joe's noticed that the chocolate coating on the sticks was lighter in color than expected.

Two allergic reactions related to the recall have been reported so far, according to the grocery store chain.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration shared the company's recall announcement on the agency's website Friday. The affected universal product codes, or UPCs, are 00847162 and 00847122.

Customers who bought the recalled products can get a refund at any Trader Joe's store.
