Danone North America is recalling its Light & Fit Greek Crunch S’mores flavor, and Hiland Dairy is recalling its half-gallon Whole Chocolate Milk, both for an allergy alert.

Light & Fit S’mores

The Light & Fit Greek Crunch S’mores is packaged with mix-in toppings, and it was found that the product has been improperly labeled and contains peanuts.

According to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), “It was discovered that some of the toppers sold on the product contain peanuts and are improperly labeled. People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.”

The recall batch affects 3,521 cases being sold in the US with an expiration date of December 30, 2018 and a UPC of 36632 03825. It has been distributed in Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.

Consumers that have already bought the yogurt can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Hiland Whole Chocolate Milk

Hiland’s half-gallon premium whole chocolate milk is being voluntarily recalled after concerns that it may contain eggnog. This could be dangerous for individuals with a sensitivity to egg allergens. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported yet, but those with an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs could be affected.

The recalled milk was produced in Hiland’s Kansas City, Missouri, facility and sold and distributed at retailers in the Kansas City metropolitan area including Topeka, Kansas and St. Joseph, Missouri.

Approximately 1,151 one-half gallon units were affected, with a sell-by date of December 13, 2018, a UPC of 0-7206000128-0 and a plant code of 29-162. Consumers who purchased the milk are encouraged to discard it or return it to the place of purchase to exchange it for a similar product.
