You might want to check your pantry for some food products that might contain undeclared milk.

Kinnikinnick Foods of Canada is warning people with milk allergies to avoid using the following products.

Original Homestyle Waffles
Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Homestyle Waffles
Pancake & Waffle Mix
Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix
Panko Style Bread Crumbs

Kinnikinnick has determined that an ingredient used in the production of these products contained MILK allergens that were not listed by the manufacturer of that ingredient and may be present in these finished products. MILK is not declared on the packaging of these 5 Kinnikinnick products.

Routine testing by Kinnikinnick discovered this MILK contamination in a specific lot of an ingredient which was certified by the manufacturer to contain no MILK allergens. This may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction in persons with allergies to MILK. Consumers who are allergic to MILK should dispose of or return the product to point of sale for a refund.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with this recall. Consumers WITHOUT allergies to MILK may continue to consume these products.

Many of the Best Before dates listed are already expired, however these are listed for completeness.
