The main objective of this survey was to obtain baseline information regarding the presence and levels of undeclared allergens and gluten in Valentine’s Day-themed candy and chocolate products. Of the 345 samples tested, 10 were found to contain undeclared gluten or allergens such as beta-lactoglobulin (BLG), peanut, almond and hazelnut. A single candy product containing gluten and 1 chocolate product containing both hazelnut and almond were deemed to represent a health risk and were recalled.
