Allergy Alert: Russell Stover Chocolates

Russell Stover Candies, Inc. (Kansas City, MO) has recalled one lot of Private Reserve Assorted Chocolates (2 7/8 ounce size) in selected cities and states. Due to a labeling error, one piece of candy in the assortment may contain undeclared hazelnuts.

The recalled boxes are marked with lot code 01JUL09 N0349. Russell Stover believes that only 29 boxes of the mislabeled chocolates were sold, and an additional 188 boxes were available for sale in the following locations:

Texas, California, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee; Southaven, Mississippi; Billings, Montana; Sparks, Nevada; and Madison Heights, Michigan.

Individuals who are allergic to nuts are at risk of a severe – possibly life-threatening – reaction upon consuming a product that contains even a small quantity of nuts. Consumers are urged to return the recalled chocolates to the store for a refund.
