FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — May 1, 2015 — San Francisco, CA — Poco Dolce Confections of San Francisco, CA is recalling all Almond, Aztec Chile, Burnt Caramel, Almond Coconut, Ginger, and Sesame Toffee Individually Wrapped Tiles. These varieties of individually wrapped Tiles are being recalled because of their label’s failure to identify the food allergen (Milk) in addition to the listing for “Butter” in the label’s ingredient statement. People who have allergy or severe sensitivity to specific type of allergen (e.g., peanuts, tree nuts {chestnuts, brazil nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts, cashews}, eggs, and sulfites) run the risk of life threatening allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, that requires immediate medical care if they consume these product.
Poco Dolce Confections immediately segregated its entire Individually Wrapped Tiles inventory and is notifying consumers and customers not to consume this product.
The Individually Wrapped Tiles are individually wrapped 2” square pieces of Bittersweet Chocolate in glassine envelopes which come in 18pc trays. They are available in seven varieties though only the following six flavors are subject to this recall: Almond, Aztec Chile, Burnt Caramel, Almond Coconut, Ginger, and Sesame Toffee.
Poco Dolce Confections wants to ensure its products are safe. Consequently, in addition to its ongoing cooperation with the California Department of Public Health, Poco Dolce Confections is voluntarily recalling all Individually Wrapped Tile Varieties (Almond, Aztec Chile, Burnt Caramel, Almond Coconut, Ginger, Sesame Toffee) from all of its customers. Consumers in possession of these Chocolates should not eat the product and should return the product to the place of purchase.
