WISCONSIN — Prairie Farms has issued a recall on their 1 percent chocolate milk after they didn't label an egg allergen on the label.

They issued a limited voluntary recall of their Prairie Farms Premium Flavored Chocolate Milk gallons and Prairie Farms 1% Lowfat Chocolate Milk gallons (Best by Date: Dec. 4, 2020).

The company said people with an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs could experience a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to the milk.

1,152 units of chocolate milk gallons were distributed to store in southeastern Wisconsin, and in the Chicago area, including the Northern Illinois Suburbs, and Rockford.

The recalled products contain the following code dates and UPC#’s:

  • One Gallon Prairie Farms Dairy Premium Flavored Chocolate Milk, UPC: 72730-26110, Best by Date: Dec. 4, 2020, Plant Code: 17-284
  • One Gallon Prairie Farms Dairy 1% Lowfat Chocolate Milk, UPC: 72730-26126, Best by Date: Dec. 4, 2020, Plant Code: 17-284

Prairie Farms said the recall was ordered after they discovered cross-contamination with egg nog due to a valve malfunction at the Rockford, Illinois plant.

Prairie Farms Chocolate Milk gallons produced at plants, other than Rockford, Ill. plant, including Premium Flavored Chocolate, 1% Lowfat Chocolate, 2% Reduced Fat Chocolate, and Fat-Free Chocolate, are not part of this recall.

If you have a gallon of the milk, you are asked to either destroy it or return it to the store and swap it for something similar.

No illnesses have been reported as of Wednesday.
