Popular Drink Recalled in 28 States After Its Found to Contain Dangerous Allergen


A recall has been issued for Almond Milk. Authorities found a very unexpected allergen.

People generally use almond milk because they can’t handle real milk, but that’s exactly what as found in the almond milk.

The FDA has recalled 145,254 half-gallon cartons of almond milk from across 28 states, reported a local Fox affiliate. The specific type of almond milk is Vanilla Almond Breeze.

The product does not include a label listing possible milk content. The FDA said this could cause life-threatening allergic reactions if the almond milk is consumed by someone with a severe dairy allergy.

According to the FDA, one allergic reaction has been reported. The person did not require medical treatment and was not taken to the hospital.

The product is safe to those who do not have milk sensitivities or allergies.

The FDA estimates 145,254 cartons were shipped to retailers and wholesalers in Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The use-by date of the impacted cartons is Sept. 2, 2018. Those who purchased the contaminated milk can receive a refund or an exchange.

The FDA notes the stamped information would be printed as one of the following:

USE BY: SEP 02 18 (07:36 – 20:48) H5 L1 51-4109
USE BY: SEP 02 18 (07:36 – 20:48) H5 L2 51-4109
