The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced the recall of Ferrari Chocolates because of undeclared peanuts and possible fungi contamination.
The FDA said the candy, a product of China that was distributed by Tristar Food Wholesale of Jersey City, N.J., presents a serious or life-threatening health risk for people who have an allergic sensitivity to peanuts.
The FDA said the candy also contains excess amounts of aflatoxins -- by-products of certain fungi that can be potential carcinogens.
The recalled Ferrari Chocolates were distributed in 280-gram and 240-gram boxes in New York City and New Jersey.
Consumers can contact the company at 201-938-2590.
