The Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced a recall of an imported brand of hot chocolate Friday, saying the product could be harmful to those with almond allergies.

The agency says U.S.-manufactured Pelican Bay Ltd. Toffee Fudge hot chocolate has been found to contain almonds that are not declared on the label.

The product was sold at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada in 226-gram packages with the UPC number 0 94522 00993 1 and expiration date Aug. 30, 2011.

There have been no illnesses associated with the consumption of the product. It was voluntarily recalled by distributor Mountainview Marketing of Surrey, B.C.
