Company Announcement
MINDO CHOCOLATE MAKERS OF Dexter, Michigan, is recalling its Coffee Toffee Chocolate Bar (75 grams/2.65oz) because of the undeclared presence of milk, a major allergen, in the butter used to make the toffee in the bar. People with milk allergies are at risk of potentially serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled Coffee Toffee Chocolate Bars were distributed primarily in the state of Michigan in retail stores and through online orders.

The product comes as a 75 gram/2.65oz bar in a white paper wrapper labeled with Lot Numbers 190310 through 210310.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the mislabeled product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's packaging processes.

Distribution of the affected products has been suspended until the FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased Coffee Toffee Bars (75 grams/2.65oz) that have labels that do not say “contains milk” or do not have milk stated in the ingredients are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-734-660-5635 Monday to Friday 8AM to 5PM.
