Bee International is recalling its 1.7-ounce Plastic Heart Tubes with Chocolate Lentils because they may contain undeclared milk protein. People who have allergies to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The recalled Chocolate Lentils were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through food distributors.

The product comes in a 1.7-ounce clear plastic tube marked with Best Before April 2019 on the label and bearing the UPC 0-73563-00805-9. It is a Valentine item consisting of chocolate lentils packed inside the clear plastic tube, with a heart shaped topper as a lid.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing product was used during the packaging of the product. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased 1.7-ounce Plastic Heart Tubes with Chocolate Lentils with best-before April 2019 are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns may contact the company at (800) 421-6465.
