Fannie May Recalls Assorted Chocolate Box

Fannie May Confections is recalling more than 89 cases of a box of assorted chocolates because the box includes a piece of candy that contains peanuts, but the known allergen is not listed on the food ingredient label.

The product being recalled is a spring-wrapped rectangular gift box that weighs 14 ounces and contains 24 pieces of assorted chocolates including a caramel/peanut candy.

Fannie May, in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, voluntarily recalled the product after the label error was discovered during an internal review. The company says 19 boxes were sold before the product was recalled.

The boxes were available for sale beginning March 3 in seven states including Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arizona. They were sold at various retailers including Walgreen, Hallmark Gift Shops, CVS and others.

Fannie May, which first opened in Chicago, said there have been no reports of illnesses so far, but urged customers that purchased the box to dispose of it.

Last month, Fannie May recalled 12,000 heart-shaped boxes of chocolates for the same reason.
