Nestlé USA recalls certain Häagen-Dazs dark chocolate bars over mismatched packaging

Nestlé USA is recalling certain cases of Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Dark dark chocolate bars due to mismatched packaging.

The company is voluntarily recalling 82 cases of Häagen-Dazs 3 fl. oz. Chocolate Dark chocolate ice cream bars.

Nestlé found that Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Milk Chocolate Almond were mixed into the Chocolate Dark Chocolate cartons, which is expected to cause the risk of almond allergen to sensitive consumers.

The affected products can be traced by UPC Code 74570 02310, time stamp that ranges from 27:11 through 27:26, as well as batch code of 6345580411D and best by date of 10 December 2017.

According to the company, the almonds are visible in the chocolate coating, but are not declared in the ingredient statement.

People who are allergic to almonds may affect with a serious or life-threatening reaction, if they consume the recalled product.

The recalled products have been supplied to East Coast locations such as Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Nestlé said that no other production dates, sizes or varieties of Häagen-Dazs ice cream are affected by this recall nor is Häagen-Dazs product distributed in Canada, which is part of this recall.

Currently, the firm is coordinating with the US Food & Drug Administration to effectively carry out the recall.
