Announcement

Seattle Gourmet Foods of Kent, Washington is recalling 127 cases of Costco item # 2335, Dilettante Chocolates Espresso Blend, Espresso Beans in Semisweet, Milk and White Chocolate, because it may contain undeclared almonds.  People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
Dilettante Chocolates Espresso Blend was distributed to Costco Business Centers located in Lynnwood, Washington and Tukwila, Washington, and Costco Northwest located in Salt Lake City, Utah between August 22, 2017 and November 9, 2017.
The product is packaged in a clear plastic bag, net weight 5-pounds and has the UPC 37041 05211.  The affected product is labeled as Dilettante Chocolates Espresso Blend, Item# 2335, Lot Code 12287, and has the Best By 021619.
There have been no any illnesses or deaths reported to date in consumption of the recalled product. No other Dilettante packaged products are affected.
The recall was initiated after the firm discovered the chocolate covered almonds were mixed and packaged with the Dilettante Espresso Blend.  Product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of almonds.
Seattle Gourmet Foods is deeply sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused to our customers and has implemented a more standardized control of blending procedures to avoid errors like this in the future.
This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds should not consume the recalled product and should return Dilettante Chocolates Espresso Blend to the place of purchase for a full refund.  Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-206-957-9834 from 5:00am to 3:30pm PST on Monday to Friday.
