Chocolate Treats Recalled Due To Salmonella Risk

Chocolate Treats Recalled Due To Salmonella Risk

Euphoria Chocolate Company of Eugene,OR is initiating a voluntary recall of Peanut Butter Classic Truffles, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Meltaways, and Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Meltaways due to a potential Salmonella contamination.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The recalled products have one month shelf life for the Peanut Butter Classic Truffles and eight months shelf life for both the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Meltaways, and Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Meltaways.  They were sold from Euphoria Chocolate store’s display case and distributed in Oregon to retailers and supermarkets from 02/17/2022 to 05/20/2022. A list of recalled products and affected Best By Dates range is listed in the table below.
