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

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing 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 production and packaging processes.
Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased the 4-ounce packages of Dark Chocolate Fruit and Peanut Bites listed above are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may e-mail Salento Organics at or call 561-402-8232 Monday-Friday between 9AM-5PM EST. Read more about this recall notice on the FDA website.
