France-based frozen confectionary maker PROLAINAT has issued a recall of its Trader Joe’s A Dozen Sweet Bites–which include Chocolate & Coffee “Opéra” Cake, Raspberry “Macaron Aux Framboises” Cake, Caramel & Chocolate Cake–due to undeclared coconut, which may cause allergic reactions in individuals sensitive to it, according to a company press release published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on April 15.
The company learned about the unlisted ingredient after a routine testing of the product packaging. The affected products were sold between January 1, 2011 and February 5, 2015 at different Trader Joe’s outlets nationwide. The products were packed in 9.16 oz boxes, and bear a UPC of #00967679 located at the back of the package.
Customers allergic to the unlisted ingredient are encouraged to return the product to the nearest Trader Joe’s store for a full refund.
