240,000 cartons of chocolate milk recalled for possible sanitizer contamination


If you recently purchased chocolate milk you will want to check the labels.

Hiland Dairy has announced a recall of a batch of their half-pint, 1% low fat, chocolate milk for possible contamination with food-grade sanitizer, reported CNN.

According to the FDA, the milk in question was produced solely at the company’s  Norman, Oklahoma facility. The notice didn’t indicate exactly what the effects of ingesting the sanitizer could do other than it may “cause illness if consumed.”

The affected cartons were sold and distributed in the following areas:

• Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Metro Area

• Western Oklahoma

• Dallas, Texas

• San Antonio, Texas

• Tyler, Texas

The recall affects products with the UPC code of 72060-00156-3,  a sell-by date of January 27, 2021, and a plant code #4025.

The company learned of the potential issue with their product as a result of internal quality-control testing at their facility. Hiland Dairy then notified the FDA to initiate the recall.

Only eight cases were affected with the potential contamination, to be the safe the company is recalling all of the product with the code.

“Hiland Dairy is working in partnership with the FDA to fully investigate the matter and comply with all necessary recall procedures,” the company said.
