The Lake Champlain Chocolate Company announced on Friday that it is recalling milk chocolate products due to possible foreign objects. Well-known Vermont companies urge customers to discard all potentially affected products on the market from July 2020 to January 2021.
The affected products have been distributed to retailers in all 50 states and the company’s three Vermont retail stores.
The company said it issued a voluntary recall after Consumer Reports found brittle plastic flakes in the finished product. So far, no consumers have reported adverse health effects due to this pollution.
After preliminary investigation and out of cautious consideration, the company stated that it has decided to recall all potentially affected products from the determined latest best range for potential foreign objects.
According to the company’s website, there are many products affected, including the various flavors of the company’s five-star bar, and these products may have been included in the category of gift baskets, including Christmas selections.
