Chocolaterie de l'Île d'Orléans is recalling certain chocolate figurines because they contain egg protein that is not declared on the label, posing a threat to people with allergies to egg protein, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said.
The protein is in the coloured eyes, hearts and flowers on the figurines, which are packaged in clear plastic bags with two labels. One says Chocolaterie de l'Île d'Orléans and the second has the type of chocolate, ingredient list and nutrition facts table.
These labels do not bear a lot code or UPC. The figurines are made of milk, dark or white chocolate.
The products were sold in Quebec. There have been no reported reactions to the figurines.
