Dairy alternative company Almond Breeze has announced a recall of 145,254 half-gallon containers of vanilla-flavored product.
The potential bad batch has been shipped to more than 20 states - leaving the company concerned for those with allergies, although it is technically 'safe to drink' for the nonallergic.
The contaminated cartons have been sold in Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.
The recall applies to cartons with the barcode ‘41570 05621’ - and a 'use by' date of September 2.
