Enjoy Life Foods has announced the voluntarily recall a single production lot of Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Chips (10 oz. bag) due to some bags containing sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and/or dried fruits. These were inadvertently added to the product, and not declared on the package (pictured opposite).

The company made the announcement on August 28, 2015 in a press release on its website.

The press release notes that only products sold in the United States are affected by the recall, and only the specific Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Chips product. The UPC code on the recalled product is: 853522 000306. The best by date, listed on the back right of the package, is: Jun 18 2016.
