Sept. 5, 2008 — The Hershey Company is recalling 7.25-ounce plastic bottles of Hershey’s Chocolate Shell Topping, which can be poured over ice cream, because it contains almonds that aren’t famous on the name.
“People who have an hypersensitivity or severe sensitivity to almonds run the chance of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction on the off chance that they consume this product,” states a Hershey news discharge, including that “the item is completely secure for buyers who do not have an allergy or sensitivity to almonds.”
No ailments linked to Hershey’s Chocolate Shell Topping had been detailed as of recently, agreeing to Hershey’s news release posted on the FDA’s web location.
The recall doesn’t incorporate any other Hershey’s confectionery items or other shell toppings.
The Hershey Company says it issued the voluntary recall after a buyer detailed the issue. A Hershey investigation found that “a small parcel of a Heath’s Shell Topping production run utilized bottles labeled Hershey’s Chocolate Shell Topping.”
