Cal Poly Recalls Chocolate bars Nationwide

Posted on October 6, 2014 by


 Cal Poly has recalled six varieties of its chocolate candy bars, citing possible contaminations.

The bars may have been tainted with peanut, milk or soy allergens and possibly exposed to microbial contamination, which can include infectious materials such as bacteria, yeast, or mold, the university said.

Cal Poly emphasized that no tests have confirmed any contaminations and no illnesses have been reported.

Cal Poly chocolates are sold in local retail stores, farmers markets around the county, on-campus locations, as well as online through the Cal Poly University Store.
