Chocolate covered almonds sold at Target Stores have been recalled.

Zachary Confections, the maker of Market Pantry Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds, issued the recall after it was discovered that the product includes peanuts, which are not declared on the label.

This puts those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts at risk for a serious or life-threatening reaction. No reactions or illnesses, however, have been reported to date.

The almonds come in a 9-ounce bag with lot code R4112D listed on the back of the package below the Nutrition Facts box.

No other Market Pantry candy items are included in the recall.

The product can be returned to Target for a refund.

Consumers with more information can contact Target Guest Relations at 1-800-440-0680 or Zachary Confections Customer Service at (765) 654-2510.
