(WLNS) -There is a recall alert on a brand of dark chocolate sold at both Meijer and Kroger stores.

The manufacturer says a key ingredient isn’t declared on the packaging.

Bulk dark chocolate products produced by GKI Foods are being called back due to an undeclared milk allergen.

According to our media partners at MLive, the chocolate was sold in Meijer brand packaging.

Kroger said the affected chocolate was sold in self serve food bins and have been removed from store shelves.

The Food and Drug Administration has no reports of any illnesses linked to the recall.
