UPC Number: 8-74492-00170-4
Lot Number: 3037431
Best By Date: 05/31/17
Reason For Recall:
Theo Chocolate is voluntarily recalling 3 ounce Salted Almond 70% Dark Chocolate bars because they may contain undeclared milk.

Co-opportunity does not have the affected bars on our shelves.
Sweet Earth Big Sur Breakfast Burrito
Best by Date: 03/30/2017
Lot Number: 6090
Sweet Earth Natural Foods is voluntarily recalling its Big Sur Burrito, 7 oz, due to a packaging error. As a result, a small number of these products contain an undeclared milk allergen. The precautionary recall was necessitated when it was discovered that a small quantity of Santa Cruz Burritos were packaged into Big Sur Burrito pouches. The Santa Cruz Burrito contains milk in the form of cheese, which is not listed as an allergen on the Big Sur Burrito pouch, therefore posing a potential risk to people who have an allergy to milk. http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm504006.htm
Please feel free to return the product for a full refund.
