Chocolate and snack producing company Hershey's is voluntarily recalling bottles of its Chocolate Shell Topping from counters because of a packaging error.

On May 5, the US Food and Drug Administration put out an announcement by The Hershey Company to recall their Chocolate Shell Topping in a 7.25-ounce bottle with UPC (346000).

The recall announcement was made after Hershey's discovered that 1,700 bottles of the product were wrongly filled with Heath Shell Topping, made with almonds.

The affected products were shipped across America between April 15 and May 3, 2021. Hershey's has also instructed all retailers who got the affected product to remove them from their store shelves with immediate effect.


At the moment, there are no reports of anyone falling sick or sustaining injuries following consumption of the affected product.

The affected customers can call the phone number on Monday through Friday from 9 am to 6 pm EST.


In the announcement, Hershey's explained that the situation arose because of an isolated error at a contract manufacturing facility, adding that immediate measures have been taken to avoid a recurrence.
