Allergy Alert: Chocolate Milk Recalled

Model Dairy (Reno, NV) has recalled approximately 400 half-gallon bottles of 2% chocolate milk after determining that the milk may contain undeclared egg protein.

The recalled milk – distributed in northwest Nevada and Portola, California – is labeled with a "Best by" date of Nov 27 or Nov 28, and UPC 7140600127.

The recall was announced to the local media, and also was publicized on Wal-Mart's web site. Neither FDA, the Nevada Department of Health, nor the Nevada Department of Agriculture has posted the recall information on their respective web sites.

No illnesses or reactions have been reported. Nevertheless, individuals who are allergic to egg protein may experience a severe reaction after consuming the recalled milk.

For information on this recall, consumers should contact Model Dairy at 800-433-2030.
