FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – June 13, 2013 — Sequel Naturals Ltd. Dba “Vega” is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of nutrition bars due to finding trace amounts of milk in some lot codes.

People who have severe sensitivity or allergies to milk may run the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. There has been one reported allergic reaction.

The bars are sold nationwide. They do not pose any risk to the general population without milk allergies.

While the products are labeled with a precautionary statement “Made in a facility that processes peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, dairy, and soy”, Vega will be revising our packaging to expand the current precautionary allergen labeling information to include “May Contain Dairy…”.
