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 three G&J Gourmet Market cocoa products because they may contain melamine, a potential health risk:

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

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 a.m. and 5 p.m. toll free at 1-888-645-1053 or e-mail

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