Chocolate chip bars sold at Minnesota, North Dakota Cash Wise stores recalled

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Coborn’s Inc., the parent company of Cash Wise stores in Minnesota and the Dakotas, is recalling its Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Bars because the labeling did not say they contained milk.

Some of the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Bars were incorrectly labeled as Gluten Free Fudge Brownies, according to a news release from Coborn's, which is based in St. Cloud, Minn.

The Gluten Free Fudge Brownie label does not indicate the product contains milk, however the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Bars that are incorrectly labeled as Gluten Free Fudge Brownies do contain milk.
