Dove Recalls Bags Of Holiday Chocolates Sold At Walmart

DETROIT (WWJ) - It's time to check your pantry.

Nearly 7,000 cases of Dove Chocolate that were sold at Walmart stores are being recalled because the packages could actually contain Snickers, Twix or Milky Way candy bars, posing a risk for those with allergies.

Mars Chocolate said the recall includes 24 ounce bags of Dove Chocolate Assortment Snowflakes. It's a seasonal item that was sold only at Walmart stores across the U.S., including Michigan.

The recalled item has one UPC, 400050521, and several lot codes: 537CG4PA30, 537DG4PA30, 538AG4PA30, 538AM4PA30, 541AG4PA20, and 542EM4PA20. The codes are located on the back of the packaging on the lower right side.

Approximately 6,700 cases of this item may contain some Snickers, Milky Way and Twix pieces that contain peanuts, wheat and/or eggs, but these ingredients are not listed on the outer package ingredient label. People who have allergies to peanuts, wheat and/or eggs have the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. No adverse reactions have been reported to date.

The issue was identified by a consumer who found a Snickers candy bar in the Dove bag.

The product is safe to consume for those who do not have allergies. Consumers who have allergy concerns, should return this product to the store where they purchased it for a full refund. For more information, call 1-800-551-0907.
