Hiland Dairy has requested a voluntary recall of two products produced at its Omaha facility over concerns the products may contain milk protein that could affect those individuals that have sensitivity to milk allergens, according to a release by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported at this time, but 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 release.
The affected products are sold and distributed at retailers in the following states: Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas. The affected product information is:
- One Gallon Hiland Dairy Orange Juice with UPC 0-7206000586-8, sell by date 02/05/18, plant code 3108.
- One Gallon Tampico Citrus Punch with UPC 0-9518801128-3, sell by date 03/09/18, plant code 3108.
Hiland Dairy initially learned of a potential issue during internal quality control testing at the Omaha facility. The company promptly contacted the FDA to initiate the voluntary product recall, according to the release.
Customers who have purchased this product are encouraged to discard it or return it to their local retailer to exchange the product for a like item. Consumers with questions may contact Hiland Dairy seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST at 402-740-2254 or athilanddairy.com/contact-us
A company spokeswoman told The Nonpareil on Wednesday that local retailers were notified of this recall last weekend and that these affected products have since been taken down from their shelves.
