ATLANTA -- Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin is alerting Georgians to the recall of some cocoa products due to possible melamine contamination.

Dorsey Marketing Inc. (DMI) of Ville St. Laurent, Quebec, Canada, is recalling the following three G&J Gourmet Market cocoa products because they may contain melamine, a potential health risk.

  • G&J Hot Cocoa Stuffer Item 120144 (UPC 061361201444). This hot cocoa product was sold in small green and blue boxes with a backer card, candy cane and marshmallows.
  • G&J His and Hers Hot Cocoa Set Item 120129 (UPC 489702201296). This cocoa product was sold with two ceramic mugs in a brown box.
  • G&J Cocoa item 120126, sold in two flavors: French Vanilla Cocoa and Double Chocolate Cocoa. The G&J French Vanilla Cocoa (UPC 061361201260) was sold in a small green bag with a whisk attached. The G&J Double Chocolate Cocoa (UPC 061361201260) was sold in a small pink bag with a whisk attached.

The recalled products were imported into the U.S. by DMI and distributed nationwide to Big Lots during the weeks of September 22, 2008 and September 29, 2008 and to Shopko during the week of October 10, 2008.

Consumers who purchased these products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact DMI Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST toll free at 1-888-645-1053 or e-mail recall@dmi-global.com.

"Georgia Department of Agriculture inspectors will be checking stores and food warehouses to make sure these products are removed from sale," said Irvin.
