Dessert sauces recalled

Anyone who bought seven dessert sauces produced by Stonewall Kitchen LLC of York, Maine, are being urged by a federal food watchdog agency not to eat them.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the voluntary recall, saying the sauces might contain Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium that can cause life-threatening illness or death.

Being recalled are all lots of Stonewall Kitchen-brand chocolate hazelnut, chocolate peanut butter, coffee caramel, dulce de leche and espresso dulce de leche sauces. Also being recalled are Simply Enjoy-brand coffee caramel and chocolate peanut butter sauces.
