Electric City Sweets, a Scranton, Pennsylvania-based company, is recalling their Red Velvet Milk Chocolate Bars due to the presence of undeclared milk, a major food allergen that is not listed on the product label as required by law. This poses a potential risk for individuals with milk allergies or lactose intolerance, as consuming the product could lead to serious allergic reactions.

As of now, no illnesses or allergic reactions associated with this recalled item have been reported to the company.
