Trader Joe's Recall 2016: List of Candy Products Pulled in Latest Food Recall

Source: Trader Joe's

Trader Joe's, say it ain't so. The specialty grocery store took two of its candy products off the shelves after the company supplying the product found both may contain an ingredient not listed on the packaging: milk. 

"To our valued customers: We have been alerted by our supplier of Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange Sticks (SKU 084716) and Trader Joe's Chocolate Raspberry Sticks (SKU 084712) that these products may contain milk, which is not listed in their ingredients," Trader Joe's wrote on its announcements page. "People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk may run the risk of allergic reaction if they consume these products."

Trader Joe's initially listed the recall on Friday, and is offering a full refund for the purchase of either of the two types of candy. So far, only two reactions have been reported after consuming either of the dark chocolate covered jelly sticks. 

If you have any questions about the recall, or if you believe any other Trader Joe's food items may contain unlisted ingredients, the company provides a customer relations number available Monday through Friday at 626-599-3817. Or, you can reach out here.

The recall will certainly come as a shock to Trader Joe's candy lovers, though it could be a whole lot worse — after all, at least the secret ingredient found in this batch of treats isn't urine
