August 24, 2013 - Dove Chocolate Discoveries (DCD) is voluntarily recalling its Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collection boxes marked Item #3265D, lot code #317DAIDS01 because some boxes may contain undeclared nuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. No illnesses or reactions have been reported to date.

Over the past two weeks, the company has made an effort to contact all recipients of the affected boxes. However, a number of those recipients could not be reached, and up to four mislabelled boxes remain outside company control.

The product, which is unique to DCD's home party business and not available in stores, was distributed through home party sales in the United States. The interior packaging is labelled properly indicating a product that includes nuts. The recall was initiated when the company received a call from independent Chocolatier (sales representative) indicating that a customer order for Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collection contained Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Dusted Almonds.

The company requests that consumers who have a box of Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collection Item #3265D, lot code #317DAIDS01 please contact (866) 922-3683 (M-F, 8:30 – 5:00 ET) to coordinate product return and replacement.
