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.
