(RNN) - The company First Source is voluntarily recalling several of its dark chocolate products because they contain milk, which is not listed as an ingredient.

The affected product was sold from Jan. 1, 2016 to the present. The company said the recall is a precaution, as no illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date.
