Authorities, on behalf of Torn & Glasser, have announced a product recall of Torn & Glasser chocolate espresso beans after they found out that their ingredients are not declared properly on the product’s label.
According to a report from the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA), more than seven thousand Torn & Glasser’s 12-ounce tubs of dark chocolate espresso beans actually contained dark chocolate-covered walnuts, and its product labels did not properly disclose it.
Additionally, authorities from the FDA found out after an investigation that the company’s production staff accidentally used the wrong label in the product’s packaging.
This gaffe may be harmless to some, but for others, it may be a huge deal that can pose adverse consequences to their health and wellbeing.
The FDA warned that when consumed by unknowing customers who are allergic to walnuts, they may suffer a serious or life-threatening episode of an allergy attack that will require immediate medical care.
Per the American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology, the country’s premier association for professional experts on the fields of allergy, asthma, and immunology, a severe allergic reaction to walnuts will trigger what experts call Anaphylaxis.
A person with a walnut allergy can easily manage the risks of experiencing a severe anaphylaxis episode by carrying epinephrine with them all the time.
Officials have urged the members of the general public to not consume the recalled Torn & Glasser 12-ounce tubs of dark chocolate espresso beans and return them for a full refund.
The company, in light of the issue, has said that it is open to accept and entertain queries from worried customers.
