Allergy Alert: French-made Chocolate Recalled in UK

January 31, 2009

The UK Food Standards Agency advised consumers yesterday that a single date code of Bovetti Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Beans (100g) contains undeclared casein, a milk protein, and is being recalled.

The chocolate was made in France and imported into the UK by Trans Manche Food Ltd. The recalled bars were sold in Waitrose, and may also have been available in other retail stores in the UK.

The recalled item is described as:

  • Bovetti Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Beans, 100g: Best before 30 September 2009; Product code: L246

Individuals who are allergic to milk protein may experience severe symptoms shortly after consuming the recalled chocolate. Consumers should return the recalled Bovetti chocolate to the store for a refund.

The UK Food Standards Agency is working with its French counterpart to determine whether any additional actions are needed.

  1. The history of chocolate is one that goes back centuries through many cultures. The Aztec emperor Montezuma drank over 50 cups a day of chocolate which is one of the more interesting aspects of the history of chocolate. Ancient cultures who brew the seeds of the cacao tree into a delicious beverage was the start of a wide assortment of chocolates that everybody enjoys today.

    Really glad to get into this posting.
