FLEMINGTON, NJ – ShopRite is recalling some of its store-branded Semi-Sweet Real Chocolate Chips.

The voluntary recall was announced by Wakefern Food Corp., ShopRite’s retailer-owned cooperative.

The recall was issued because the package may contain milk chocolate chips, and milk is not declared in the ingredient statement, according to a press release this morning from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

No illnesses have been reported but people who are allergic to milk could experience an allergic reaction if they consume the chips. No other package sizes or date codes are being recalled.

“Customers who purchased the chocolate chips may return them for an immediate refund or replacement,” said Karen Meleta, vice president of Consumer and Corporate Communications for Wakefern, in the press release.

“People who are not allergic to milk and those who are not concerned about consuming dairy ingredients may choose not to return the product as it is otherwise safe to eat,” she added.

The product was sold in ShopRite, The Fresh Grocer and other retail stores located throughout the Northeast. Wakefern has contacted ShopRite and The Fresh Grocer Price Plus Club customers who have purchased this product to alert them to the recall.

Customer questions or concerns about the recall can be directed to 1-800-ShopRite (1-800-746-7748) Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
