Allergen Alert

I got this e-mail today and thought I would post it.  I'll post an update as soon as I hear one:)

March 16th, 2009

Attached is a Manufacturer Allergen Ingredient Labeling (MAIL) ALERT for Imagine Foods/Hain Celestial Group Rice Dream Rice Drink (Vanilla, Enriched).

A child suffered an anaphylactic reaction immediately following ingestion of this product. Note the following product code: Mar 03 09 03MAR09P5FNA 21:24 29-260. The product was purchased in Michigan.

Cross-contamination with milk in the processing of the product is suspected. The product will be tested by FAARP, an independent food allergy testing laboratory at the University of Nebraska to validate the presence of allergen ingredients.

The manufacturer has been notified of this incident and invited to post a response on the ELL website.
