Whole Foods Market Recalls Chocolate Bars Over Undeclared Nuts | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

Whole Foods Market has issued a recall of Swiss Dark Chocolate Bars marketed under the 365 Organic Everyday Value label, because they could contain undeclared almonds.  The chocolate bars were sold in stores throughout the U.S., including Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.  According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the bars affected by the recall have a lot code that begins with the letters “L71423” followed by a time stamp of between the hours of 11:33 and 12:15.  The time stamp can be found on the back of the wrapper.  The recall is only being conducted because the product ingredient label does not include almonds — a flaw that has been tied to a temporary error in the packaging process.  Customers who purchased the chocolate bars can return them to the store for a full refund, or may call Whole Foods Markets at (512) 542-0656.  According to the Nemours Foundation, sponsor of the popular Healthy Kids’ Organization, some of the earliest signs or symptoms that you’re experiencing a nut allergy may include:

  • “tightness in the throat
  • hoarse voice
  • wheezing
  • cough
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • stomach pain
  • diarrhea”

If you have any of these symptoms after eating, or suspect you are having an allergic reaction to nuts, you should seek medical attention immediately.
