Announcement

Trader Joe's of Monrovia, California is voluntarily recalling all codes of Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange Sticks (UPC 00847162) and Trader Joe's Chocolate Raspberry Sticks (UPC 00847122) because the products may contain more than the stated "traces of milk" on the label. All affected product has been removed from store shelves. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange Sticks and Trader Joe's Chocolate Raspberry Sticks are packaged in an 18 oz. clear tub. The products were distributed to Trader Joe's stores nationwide. Trader Joe's initiated the voluntary removal of these products after noticing the chocolate coating appeared lighter in color than expected. Two allergic reactions have been reported to date.

Customers who have purchased the Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange Sticks and/or Trader Joe's Chocolate Raspberry Sticks may return them to Trader Joe's for a full refund. Customers with questions may contact Trader Joe's customer relations at (626) 599- 3817, 6AM-6PM PST, Monday-Friday.
