Fannie May recalls 12,000 boxes of Valentine's Day chocolates due to unidentified peanuts

Fannie May Confections is recalling 12,000 boxes of chocolates because one of the chocolates inside contains peanuts, a fact that isn't reflected on the packaging.

The company announced the recall Wednesday and it started pulling the red heart-shaped gift boxes off the market the same day.

The boxes weigh four ounces each and contain eight chocolates, including the peanut/caramel candy.

They had been sold since Jan. 10 in up to 450 stores, including Walgreens, Hallmark Gift Shops and Jewel Grocers, in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Fannie May says it is aware of one customer who had an allergic reaction.

Fannie May Confections Brands Inc. is a privately held company based in North Canton, Ohio.

The item is identified as SKU #77202 with the UPC number on the label of 0 52745 96000 2.

Lot information on this product is 13344, 13345, 13361, 14010, and 14014.

The FDA recommends that people who purchased this box of chocolates dispose of it.
