Bakers chocolate is 100% cocoa, aka fat free.

That's not actually true. 100% cocoa has a significant amount of fat. Cocoa powder is cocoa with the fat removed. Baker's chocolate is 100% cocoa (no sugar) with all the fat still there... that's why it forms a coherent solid mass, it's the fat that holds it together as opposed to the powder which has no fat.

I guess I was hoping it wasn't true and I was trying to find something else to blame. It was bound to happen sooner or later, right? I'll just have to be more vigilant next time.

Yep, most likely a lacto infection. I agree with Yooper. It happens, I just opened a bomber from a commercial brewery 2 days ago that unfortunately had a lacto infection. Might want to recheck your sanitation procedures.

That is what I thought.. The powder has little to no fat in it. The bars have something to help solidify it... fat.
