The following products may have been sold nationally and through Internet sales.

What you should do

Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

If you have an allergy to milk or soy, do not consume the recalled products as they may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction.
