Hershey Issues Allergy Alert

FDA announced today that The Hershey Company has recalled 7.25-ounce plastic bottles of Hershey's Chocolate Shell Topping because they contain undeclared almonds.

The recalled bottles can be identified by a UPC Bar Code number of 346000 and the number 69N printed below the bar code number. The recalled bottles have been available for sale since July 8, 2008.

Individuals who are not allergic to almonds can consume this product without danger. But those who are allergic to almonds risk a severe reaction after ingesting the Chocolate Shell Topping.

According to FDA, the labeling error was discovered by a consumer, who brought it to the attention of the company. No illnesses have been reported.
