Chocolate Valentine’s candy recalled, products were distributed in NC
Some Valentine’s Day chocolate candy has been recalled due to mislabeling.
The California-based See’s Candies company is warning people with allergies to coconut, almonds, walnuts or pecans to avoid eight-ounce boxes labeled “Classic Red Hearts with Assorted Chocolates.”
The company is recalling all 8-ounce Classic Red Hearts with Assorted Chocolates with bar code 737666091201 and stamped date L.A.N. 048/15 because they contain undeclared tree nuts.
The company said people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. Examples of tree nuts include almonds, walnuts, pecans and coconuts.
The products are sold nationwide and are packaged at the stores in 8-ounce Red Heart boxes. No illnesses have been reported. The company said the packages can be returned for refunds.
