Company Announcement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 3, 2024, Chuao Chocolatier is voluntarily recalling a single production of Potato Chip mini bar .39oz/11 gram LOT 4022 because some packages may contain undeclared hazelnut. People who are sensitive or have allergies to hazelnut could be at risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

This recall is limited to one lot code (4022) of the Chuao Chocolatier Potato Chip mini chocolate bar (.39 oz. bar), which was sold nationwide (excluding HI and AK) in retail stores and online in the United States. No other Chuao Chocolatier products are affected by this recall.

The product being recalled is the following:

Product Description

Item UPC

Lot Code & Best by date (found under the
flap on the back of packaging.)

Potato Chip mini bar 872629006615 Best by 22 FEB 25 4022

A picture of the consumer package label is shown below. The label does reference “Manufactured in a facility that uses tree nuts and wheat on shared equipment.”

There has been one reported customer that has experienced a mild allergic reaction to this product.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered hazelnuts were inadvertently added to the product during manufacturing and the lot produced was distributed in packaging that does not reveal the presence of hazelnuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by cross contamination on a piece of share equipment.

Consumers who are sensitive or have allergies to hazelnut should not eat this product and should discard any product they may have. Consumers should contact the company at (760) 814-6230 or support@chuaochocolatier.com to get more information about the recall. The customer service line is open 24 hours a day and Consumer Relations specialists are available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
