Cal Poly Chocolates dark chocolate bars have been recalled by the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences and Cal Poly Corporation due to an undeclared allergen, according to a press release from the university.

The food science and nutrition department recently reformulated the dark chocolate bars, adding milk in the process. The milk was left off the ingredient list, though, and could prove harmful to those with dairy allergies.

Customers with milk allergies can return the bars to the store of purchase for a full refund. There have been no illnesses thus far.

These chocolate bars are sold at retail outlets and farmers markets around the Central Coast, at on-campus locations and online through the Cal Poly Bookstore. The recall includes products made and sold since July 29, 2014 including a limited edition raspberry crisp bar sold at Open House in April and a limited edition bark candy bar, sold and distributed as gifts in June.

The voluntary product recall includes the folowing products:

  • Cal Poly Chocolates Dark Chocolate Bar; UPC# 745711562101
  • Cal Poly Chocolates Peppermint Crunch Bar; UPC# 745711564105
  • Cal Poly Chocolates Coffee Crunch Bar; UPC# 745711565102
  • Cal Poly Chocolates Spicy Cayenne Bar; UPC# 745711567106
  • Cal Poly Chocolates Raspberry Crisp Bar (limited edition; no UPC code)
  • Cal Poly Chocolates Original Bark candy (limited edition; no UPC code)

This is the second Cal Poly Chocolates recall in the last nine months. Recalls were previously made in October after labels omitted the presence of soy, peanuts and milk in six bars.
