Beware of some Easter eggs not mentioning peanut butter on labels

Hot Chocolates in Courtenay is warning consumers not to consume some Easter Eggs because they may contain peanut butter.

Hot Chocolates in Courtenay is warning consumers not to consume foiled (in teal foil) Dark Chocolate Easter Eggs marked Raspberry because they may contain peanut butter, which is not declared on the label.

If purchased after March 8, they may contain peanut butter.

About 20 of these eggs were distributed in Courtenay from Hot Chocolates at 368 Fifth St.

The eggs are labelled Raspberry on the front, with the Hot Chocolates logo sticker on the back with a D written in black. Milk chocolate eggs are not affected by this recall.

Peanut butter may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction in persons with peanut allergies.

Consumers should return any suspect product to Hot Chocolates for replacement or refund. Consumers can contact Hot Chocolates by calling 250-338-8211.
