A look at the Almond Breeze recall
Check the fridge if you’re lactose-intolerant or have a life-threatening milk allergy!
According to an FDA press release, HP Hood LLC is voluntarily recalling more than 145,000 half-gallon (1.89 L) cartons of this select almond milk because of the presence of an undeclared milk allergen.
The recall was prompted after a report of one person experiencing an allergic reaction after consuming the milk. However, neither medical treatment nor hospitalization were required in that case.
If the presence of dairy isn’t a concern for you or your family, you’re safe to consume Vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk.
All affected cartons have a use-by date of September 2, 2018 on the top and a UPC code of 41570 05621 on the side panel.
