The following milk allergy alert is from the alert from the FDA on January 14, 2014.

Paskesz Candy Company, Brooklyn, New York is recalling its Premium Belgian Chocolate Coins Hologram .5 oz bags because they may contain traces of milk.
People who have allergies to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. To date one parent has reported that her child took ill after eating one of these coins with the production code P233. Subsequent testing of a sample by the FDA showed that the coin contained .000041 parts of milk (41 parts per million). Out of caution we are recalling all production codes.
The recalled "Coins" were distributed nationwide in retail stores between October 2012 and December 2013.
The product is sold in mesh bags of .5 oz. There are 24 bags in a box.
This does not affect the product’s “KOSHER PAREVE” status.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not list the presence of milk. Sale and distribution of the chocolate coins have been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased these .5 ounce packages of "Paskesz Chocolate Pareve Hologram Coins” are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-PASKES0 between the hours of 9AM and 4PM Monday through Thursday and on Friday until 12 pm EST.
