I usually do not get a solo message from the FDA about just one chocolate related recall but today I received a "Public Alert" so I thought I should pass it along to all of you.

Lake Success, NY
Dream® brand, manufacturer of Almond Dream®, Rice Dream® and Coconut Dream® frozen dessert products, is publicly reinforcing to its consumers that the Dream® plant-based, chocolate-coated frozen desserts listed below have been found to contain milk. Some consumers have reported experiencing allergic reactions to milk after consuming these products.
Currently, product labeling states the following:
