Those who have milk sensitivities may have a life-threatening reaction if they consume this product. As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer I have seen food recalls like this one and know that, with as much testing goes into food products before manufacturers send them to market, mistakes can still be made. Although the product liability lawyer at our law firm does not handle these type of cases there are food recall lawyers out there that can help your or a loved one if you have been affected by a recall such as this one.
