Chocolate Easter Bunnies Recalled Due to Undeclared Allergen

The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) advises consumers that A & J Bakery, located at 1458 Park Avenue in Cranston, is voluntarily recalling chocolate five-ounce Easter bunnies that were sold in cellophane bags with no labels and were purchased in the store because they may contain the undeclared allergen of milk. (None of these chocolate bunnies was sold over the internet.) People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

HEALTH received a complaint on Tuesday that someone had eaten a chocolate bunny and had an allergic reaction. A & J Bakery is cooperating fully with HEALTH’s investigation. There were no unsold chocolate bunnies at the bakery; however anyone who has a milk allergy and still has a chocolate bunny from A& J Bakery that fits the above description should not eat it. (People who do not have a milk allergy can eat the chocolate bunny.)
