I actually had a reaction to these bars. My only allergy is a severe anaphylaxis to milk products, and the only conclusion I can come to is that they're somehow getting a cross-contamination issue. I contacted the company thru Facebook initially, and all my posts got deleted. I reached out through Twitter and got told to "shut my piehole" and I have sent an email that has gone unanswered.

The company member in the past has been rude to reviewers that are not vegan, so this is not a one-time event. Google CandyBlog's reviews of their bars and read the comments "Susan" mde. They even said "Just because she says she had a reaction doesn't make it true"!!! Who has time to make things like this up? :dungetit

They also say they don't promote being Dairy Free, yet it's on the labels of the bars! As someone who is a huge advocate for those with allergies and anaphylaxis, I thought I should get my story out here about this company and my experiences. I had an allergic reaction, and I would like to make others with severe milk allergies aware that this product may not be safe for you.

Wow, that's terrible! What type of candy bars are these? I've never heard of the brands listed in the recall notice. . . I'll be sure not to give my business to a company with such poor customer service though. Thanks for sharing, and glad you are ok.
