Dean Dairy is voluntarily recalling one-gallon size Tampico® Tropical Punch sold in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin and bottled and distributed by Dean Dairy that has the “Best By” code date of 12-27-17 because this product may contain milk, an undeclared allergen.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. While this product has not been linked to any illness related to allergens at this time, Dean Dairy is taking this precautionary measure because the Tropical Punch bottled and distributed by Dean Dairy with the “Best By” code date of 12-27-27 may contain milk, an allergen, which has not been declared on the packaging.
