Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports that some GFS Lemon Pudding products have been mislabeled and are actually Vanilla Pudding. Further, milk is an ingredient in this Vanilla Pudding recipe but not in the GFS Lemon Pudding production. Consequently, milk has not been declared on the recalled product’s label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.

About Milk Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).
