FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Monrovia, CA -- January 4, 2006 -- Trader Joe's Company of Monrovia, California is recalling Trader Joe's Gourmet Chocolate Fudge (8 oz. original) code BB 07/01/06 LOT 008, because the product may contain walnuts that are not declared on the label. Since walnuts are an allergen, we're recalling the entire lot. You can find the code on the back of the package marked on a small white sticker next to the nutritional label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

This product code was removed from sale in all Trader Joe's Eastern Seaboard stores. Warehouse inventory is being held off sale.

There have been no reports of injury or illness from this product.

The recall was initiated after Trader Joe's store personal identified code BB 07/01/06 LOT 008 contained fudge with walnuts in packaging that did not reveal the presence of walnuts. This code was only sent to the Eastern Seaboard stores supplied by the Taunton, MA warehouse.

At Trader Joe's we take the safety of our customers and the integrity of our products very seriously.
