Your almond milk might be tainted with actual milk
Health nuts, back away from your smoothies.
The Food and Drug Administration recently announced a recall of dairy-free Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almond milk over reports of contamination with . . . actual milk.
The popular dairy-free brand, produced by HP Hood LLC — a New England-based dairy — will pull more than 145,000 half-gallon cartons of their refrigerated vanilla variety from stores and wholesalers in 28 states, including New Jersey, NJ.com reports. The recall applies to Vanilla Almond Breeze with a use-by date of September 2, 2018.
In a press release, a representative from the FDA says, “People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.”
According to the FDA, there has been one reported instance of an allergic reaction, though medical attention was not necessary.
