People with milk-protein allergy advised to avoid blueberry chocolates

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning consumers with allergies to milk protein not to eat some blueberry flavoured chocolates because they are not adequately labelled.

The La Chocolaterie des Pères Trappistes brand Blueberry Flavour Cream chocolates contain milk products, yet milk is not listed among the ingredients on the label. The chocolates are identified by UPC 0 67456 50806 1, and are sold in a 250-gram cellophane bag.

La Chocolaterie des Pères Trappistes Mistassini Inc. has voluntarily recalled the chocolates. The product has been sold across Quebec.

There have been no medical incidents reported after consumption of the product. Eating the chocolates can cause severe or life-threatening reactions among those with allergies to the milk protein.
