SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- See's Co. of San Francisco said it is recalling all dark chocolate blueberries due to undeclared milk, which can cause an allergic reaction in some people.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume this product, company officials said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the product was distributed nationwide via See's Candies retail shops, licensees and mail order. The product is sold bulk and packaged at the shops in 8-ounce clear cellophane bags. One illness was reported to date, the FDA said.

The product UPC is: 737666094479.

The recall was initiated after a customer reported having an allergic reaction to the product. Subsequent investigation indicates the label had milk omitted, the FDA said.

Consumers who have purchased Sees' Candies Dark Chocolate Blueberries and are sensitive to milk are urged to return the blueberries to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange.

Those with questions should contact the company at 1-800-789-7337 -- Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PDT.
