Chocolate Snack Merchandise Recall

May 6th, 2006

Chocolate Snack Merchandise Recall

URAYASU, CHIBA - Oriental Land Co., Ltd. has announced the recall and immediate discontinuation of sales of all "Double Chocolate Cookies," a Tokyo DisneySea Park merchandise item produced by Tokyo Chidoriya. This decision was made as soon as Oriental Land was informed that the producer of the chocolate ingredient used in the merchandise, Nisshin Kako Co., Ltd. (head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo), was recalling the ingredient.

An investigation by Nisshin Kako has ascertained that the chocolate contained the anti-oxidant "TBHQ" which has not been approved for use in Japan. There is a high possibility that the anti-oxidant was mixed in the "Kuba 500" palm oil imported by Honen Lever Co., Ltd. (head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo). The palm oil was subsequently used by Nisshin Kako as one of the ingredients for the processing and manufacture of the chocolate in question.

Guests who have purchased "Double Chocolate Cookies" and have it in their possession are requested to send it and its packaging, together with their name, address and phone number, to the designated address (see below) with the postage to be paid by Oriental Land Co. A refund for the product will be sent at a later date. Oriental Land Co. sincerely apologizes to its guests for the trouble and inconvenience this may cause.
