FDA Announces Recall of Galerie Brand Choxie Truffles for Undeclared Peanuts that Could Cause Potentially Fatal Allergic Reactions

Ross Acquisition Co. Inc., doing business as Galerieâ„¢ of Hebron, Kentucky, is recalling all lots of its 4.95 oz packages of CHOXIEâ„¢ brand truffles and balls because they may contain undeclared peanuts or peanut butter.

People who are allergic to peanuts and peanut products run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume these products.

Product in this recall is: CHOXIEâ„¢ Double Dark Truffles UPC Code 768395345129.

The following are also being recalled as a precautionary measure, not because of undeclared ingredients.

CHOXIEâ„¢ Milk Chocolate Truffles UPC Code 768395345099
CHOXIEâ„¢ Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls UPC Code 768395345105
CHOXIEâ„¢ Milk Chocolate Caramel Balls UPC Code 768395345112

The recalled items were distributed to and sold in Targetâ„¢ and SuperTargetâ„¢ retail stores nationwide.

The packages are marked with UPC code listed above on the back bottom left corner. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this problem.

The recall was made after it was discovered that CHOXIEâ„¢ Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls were within packages of CHOXIEâ„¢ Double Dark Truffles.

Production has been suspended until Ross Acquisition Co. Inc and the FDA are certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased these items should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Anyone with questions may contact the company directly at 1-859-538-8500.
