For those of us that drink almond milk instead of regular milk, we do so for a variety of reasons. One of the main ones being, of course, that it doesn’t contain any dairy. 

So, when we heard that the Almond Breeze brand of almond milk was being recalled for containing dairy, we were a little shocked. 

Sure, if you drink almond milk because you prefer the taste and health benefits, you may be mildly upset. But what if you actually couldn’t have dairy?? Now it becomes a serious issue. 

If you have severe (or really any) milk sensitivities or allergies, make sure you are up-to-date with the facts before you head to the grocery store. 

“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a news release Thursday that refrigerated Vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk may contain milk, which is an allergen not listed on the cartons' label.”

Though, so far only the vanilla-flavored almond milk has been compromised, to avoid any risk, it may be wise to avoid the entire brand for a bit. 

“The recall affects more than 145,000 half-gallon cartons sold in retailers across 28 states, including Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia. It applies to Vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk with a use-by date of Sept. 2, 2018.”

That’s a pretty large group of people, especially here locally in the DMV! 

So far, several thousand cartons of Almond Breeze vanilla-flavored almond milk have already been recalled, and there may be more recalls in the future.
