Please review the following message from Alan Talarsky, Environmental Scientist 1, Food and Drug Safety Program, DHSS regarding the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Class 1 Recall of Artisan Confections' Kumasi Sambirano Dark Chocolate Bars due to undeclared milk, an allergen.

Artisan Confections Company is voluntarily recalling its Scharffen Berger Kumasi Sambirano 68 percent Cacao Pure Dark Chocolate bars because they may contain undeclared milk. No other Scharffen Berger items are involved in this recall. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the Kumasi Sambirano product.

The 3 ounce bars are wrapped in distinctive green packaging and were sold over the Internet and through specialty retail outlets nationwide from March 2006 to June 2007. All lot numbers of the item are covered by the recall. This was a limited-edition item that is no longer in production.

The recall was initiated after a consumer contacted Artisan Confections about an allergic reaction, and it was discovered that Kumasi Sambirano packaging did not reveal the possible presence of milk.

A photo of the recalled product is attached.

No action is required of local health departments at this time for this recall. If any requests for assistance are received from the FDA, the Food and Drug Safety Program will contact you. For additional information regarding this recall, please click on the weblink below.
