Voluntary Product Recall - Clarification

recall followup notification

Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC) is issuing a clarification to the initial public alert and voluntary recall posted on January 15, 2021.  This is NOT an additional incident.  This clarification is being issued for ease of understanding and relates primarily to various assortment packages which contain the individual units subject to this initial public alert and voluntary recall.

This voluntary product recall is for select milk chocolate products that may contain potential foreign objects. Lake Champlain Chocolates is issuing this recall after a consumer reported finding brittle plastic pieces in a product. After initial investigations and out of an abundance of caution, Lake Champlain Chocolates is voluntarily recalling affected products distributed between July 2020 and January 2021. To date, no consumers have reported adverse health effects due to this contamination.

Below are the affected products included in the recall:
