A sweet snack sold around the country, including in Arizona, has been recalled after it was determined it could pose a risk for a "life-threatening" reaction.

Chuao Chocolatier issued a voluntary recall on May 3 of a single production of its Potato Chip Mini Chocolate Bar due to the potential of some packages containing undeclared hazelnut due to cross contamination, according to a recall notice from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. While the label notes that the product is "manufactured in a facility that uses tree nuts and wheat on shared equipment," the undeclared allergen could cause a "serious or life-threatening" reaction to consumers with a sensitivity or allergy to hazelnuts.

The recall only affects the .39 oz/11 gram Chuao Chocolatier Potato Chip Mini Chocolate Bar with the Lot Code 4022 and a Best By date of 22 FEB 25 and UPC Code of 872629006615. The product was sold online and in retail stores nationwide, with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska. No other Chuao Chocolatier products are included in the recall.

As of time of the recall, at least one consumer has reported experiencing a mild allergic reaction. Anyone with a hazelnut sensitivity or allergy should not consume the chocolate bar.
