GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Meijer, in conjunction with its supplier, Lamontagne Chocolate Corp., is announcing a recall of Frederik’s Dark Chocolate Almonds and Meijer Express Go Cup Dark Chocolate Almonds because they may contain undeclared milk.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recall includes stand-up pouches carried at Meijer stores and to-go cups carried at Meijer Express locations in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. All date codes from both products are impacted. Meijer has not received any customer complaints or claims of illness associated with this recall to date.

- 7-60236-19787-4     Meijer Express Go Cups Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds (7.5 oz.)

The products may contain an undeclared milk allergen due to a product specification change from Lamontagne, which was not communicated to Meijer.
