In a summer where we’ve already seen Goldfish, Ritz, salads and wraps recalled, now there’s an almond milk recall. Unlike the other major summer recalls, which were for bacterial or parasitic contamination concerns, this recall alert is for a possible allergen.

Over 145,000 half-gallon cartons of refrigerated Vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk are being voluntarily recalled by HP Hood LLC. Representatives from Blue Diamond Almonds did not immediately return Red Tricycle’s request for comment.

Recall Description: Vanilla Almond Breeze Almond Milk

The current recall includes half-gallon (1.89 L) cartons of the refrigerated Vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk. The almond milk has a use-by date of Sept. 2, 2018 and was shipped to both retailers and wholesalers in several different states, including AL, AR, CT, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KY, LA, MD, ME, Mi, MN, MO, MS, NC, NE, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA and WI. Keep in mind, wholesalers may have sold this milk to retailers in other states. Use the sell-by and UPC code—4157005621— to identify the product.

Why Was the Almond Milk Recalled?

The affected almond milk product was voluntarily recalled after finding that it may contain milk (cow’s milk, not just almond milk) that was not listed on the label. This is a potential allergen and can cause serious to life-threatening reactions in people with sensitivities.

How To Tell If Your Almond Milk Was Recalled

Look for the use-by date of Sept. 2, 2018 and the UPC code of 4157005621.

What Can Parents Do

If you have any of the affected milk at home, return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange. You can also visit the Blue Diamond Almonds website to complete a Consumer Information Form. The company will mail you a replacement coupon after verifying the purchase.
