The affected cartons were reportedly shipped to stores in 28 states including Connecticut, Maine, New York and New Jersey, according to Blue Diamond.

Unless you have a milk intolerance or allergy, it's safe to consume this product.

So far, the FDA has received a report of one allergic reaction in connection with the recalled almond milk.

The people at Blue Diamond announced yesterday that half-gallon cartons of its "Almond Breeze" milk, specifically the vanilla-flavored variety, are being recalled "because the product may contain milk, an allergen not listed on the label". The person did not require medical treatment and was not taken to the hospital.

The dairy industry has actually been fighting allowing non-dairy products to be called milk.

Almond milk is made with filtered water and almonds, among other ingredients.

The 145,254 affected products make up only 0.8 percent of Vanilla Almond Breeze half-gallons shipped by Hood in the previous year.

Additionally, products have a UPC bar code of 41570 05621 on the carton's side panel.

This recall specifically applies to Vanilla Almond Breeze half-gallon cartons with a use-by date of September 2, 2018.

If you purchased the product, you can return it where you bought it for a full refund or exchange, or go to http://www.bluediamond.com to complete an online form.
