Product Description:
Milk Chocolate Covered Caramels with Nonpareils
Company Announcement
Silvestri Sweets Inc. of Geneva, IL is voluntarily recalling its 8 ounce bags of Favorite Day branded Valentine’s Milk Chocolate Covered Caramels with Nonpareils because they may contain an undeclared tree nut.  People who have allergies to tree nuts {chestnuts, brazil nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts, cashews} run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled items were distributed nationwide through Target retail stores.

The products are packed in 8 oz. Favorite Day branded stand up pouch bags with the lot # 33822 and best by date on 07 DEC 2023, which are printed on the back of the bag underneath the UPC barcode.

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

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that possible tree nut inclusions were distributed in packaging and/or product that did not reveal the presence of tree nuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem may have been caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging process.

Consumers who have purchased 8 ounce bags of the Favorite Day Valentine’s Milk Chocolate Caramels with nonpareils are urged to call Target Guest Relations at 1-800-440-0680 (24/7) for a refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Silvestri Sweets at 1-630-232-2500 - M-F 8:30am-4:30pm CST.
