Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following dairy allergy alert is from the FDA on March 27, 2014.

BM Chocolate Distributors, Ltd. of Brooklyn, NY is recalling "all lots" of CHOCOLAT Alprose 52% CACAO PREMIUM DARK CHOCOLATE, Alprose Swiss Chocolate Dark Chocolate and CHOCOLATE Alprose Napolitains because it may contain undeclared milk. 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.
The three chocolate products were distributed nationwide to retail stores from January 2013 through March 2014.
The chocolate product is packed in the following three ways:

  • CHOCOLAT ALPROSE 52% CACAO PREMIUM DARK CHOCOLATE, within stand-up maroon colored gift box. NET WT 3.5 oz (100g). The UPC is 689423025038.
  • Alprose Swiss Chocolate Dark Chocolate within a gold colored pillow gift box. NET WT 3.5 oz (100g). The UPC is 689423027308.
  • CHOCOLAT Alprose NAPOLITAINS SWITZERLAND, bulk product within clear plastic bags of 230 pieces. NET WT. 1 Kg (35 oz). The UPC is 712963000354.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency discovered that this dark chocolate product contained milk, was distributed in packaging that did not list the presence of milk.
This does not affect the product's "KOSHER PAREVE" status.
Sale and distribution of these products have been halted, until FDA and our company is certain that the packaging of this product is corrected to list the right allergy information.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (718) 522-0689, Monday through Thursday between the hours of 9:00am-5:00pm EST.
