Wilbur Dark Chocolate Covered Cashews Recalled

Posted on January 3, 2020 by


Cargill is recalling 39 one-pound bags of product incorrectly packaged as Wilbur Dark Chocolate Covered Cashews. Sold locally through the Wilbur Chocolate Store in Lititz, Pennsylvania, the bags are being recalled because of a wheat allergen presence.

Wilbur Dark Chocolate Malted Milk Balls were incorrectly labeled and packaged as Dark Chocolate Covered Cashews. The Malted Milk Balls contain wheat, which is not listed on the incorrect ingredient label. The Dark Chocolate Covered Cashews labels do, however, bear a “may contain wheat” statement.

Wheat allergic individuals and/or those with celiac disease (gluten intolerance) should not consume the incorrectly packaged Dark Chocolate Malted Milk Balls.
