Chocolate bars sold in CT recalled for nuts

The supermarket chain Aldi has voluntarily recalled Choceur Dark Chocolate Bars in several states — including Connecticut — due to the potential presence of almond pieces not listed on packaging. The recall was initiated after an Aldi employee identified almond pieces in the product. This product may cause an allergic reaction in customers who have a nut allergy.

The affected product is a 5.29 oz. chocolate bar with brown and red wrapping. The best-by date is July 24, 2018, with the following UPC code: 4149817964.

The product was available for purchase in Washington, D.C., and in 23 states, including Connecticut.

To date, no illnesses related to this product have been reported. No other ALDI products are affected by this recall.

Customers who have questions about this recall may contact ALDI customer service via aldi.us/customer-service or 800-325-7894.
