If you're drinker of Vanilla Almond Breeze Milk you need to be aware that some of the cartons that were sold in Illinois, along with 27 other states, contained actual milk.

ABC7 shares that "HP Hood LLC, the company that makes Vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk, is recalling certain varieties of the non-dairy product because it could contain real milk."

According to the FDA this could pose a problem for those who have allergies or "severe sensitivity to milk." They "run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products."

The recall is over the 145,254 half-gallon cartons of the Vanilla Almond Breeze Milk that "were shipped to retailers and wholesalers in AL, AR, CT, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KY, LA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NE, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WI."

The recall affects those cartons with the "use-by date of September 2, 2018."

The milk is safe to drink unless you have an allergy or sensitivity to milk.

If you do, look for the following information stamped on the cartons:
