In specific U.S. markets, Russell Stover Candies, Inc., is recalling one lot code of its 2 7/8 oz size of Private Reserve Assorted Chocolates because one piece of candy in the assortment may contain undeclared hazelnuts due to a labeling error.

The recalled product was distributed in the following states and cities: Texas, California, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee; Southaven, Mississippi; Billings, Montana; Sparks, Nevada; and Madison Heights, Michigan.

The candy containing the hazelnuts comes in a box with a red lid and gold border. The box is held closed by a gold cord tied in a bow. A label on the bottom right corner of the box identifies it as "Assorted Chocolates, Net Weight 2 7/8 oz." The side of the box is marked "01JUL09 N0349." Only product with the "N0349" lot code is affected.

Consumers who have purchased 2 7/8 oz packages of Russell Stover Private Reserve Assorted Chocolates, with the lot code ending in "N0349" are urged not to consume the white chocolate piece if they are allergic to hazelnuts.
