Lovell Chocolatier recalls products for exposure to allergens

Queen Bee Gardens is recalling many of its confectionery products after incorrect labeling led to several products being unknowingly exposed to nuts and dairy – a serious health risk for allergy sufferers.

On April 28, 2022, Lovell’s Queen Bee LLC issued a voluntary recall of confectionery products purchased within the last year. The voluntary recall involves a variety of honey caramel candy and chocolate products that may contain undeclared allergens, including tree nuts and dairy.

People with allergies or high sensitivities to tree nuts (macadamia, coconut, pecan, walnut, almond, and cashew) and dairy products (milk) may risk serious or even life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.

The affected products were sold to Queen Bee Gardens and distributed nationwide through retail, wholesale and direct sales, with production dates through April 26, 2022. The problem of undeclared tree nut allergens was identified during a routine food safety inspection. The mislabeled milk and nut allergen was the result of a label review.

The Wyoming Department of Agriculture is working with the facility to contact retailers statewide to remove affected products and products in this recall are being actively tracked.

Consumers who purchased this product from Queen Bee Gardens may return the affected product to the store for a full refund. Consumers with additional questions can call 1-307-548-2818 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. MST, Monday through Friday, to speak with the Queen Bee LCC Recall Coordinator.
