Nature’s One Recalling Children’s Drink Mix Due To Undeclared Milk Allergen

Nature’s One of Lewis Center, Ohio Monday announced a voluntary recall of PediaSmart® SOY Vanilla Beverage Mix because milk is not listed under the “contains” label statement.

PediaSmart® SOY Vanilla Beverage Mix is a powder beverage sold in 12.7 ounce (360 gram) canisters.

“Each lot is tested for milk allergen by independent 3rd party laboratories before release for sale: no milk allergen was detected in any lots of the finished product. No illnesses have been reported to date, however out of an abundance of caution the product is being recalled. 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,” according to the announcement.

The product distributed nationwide and in Canada through online retailers and medical supply distributors.

Lot numbers in the recall are:

  • PSV 7271 MI1, Use by Sept 1, 2019
  • PSV 8078 MI1, Use by March 1, 2020
  • PSV 8274 MI1, Use by Oct 1, 2020
  • PSV 9105 MI1, Use by April 1, 2021

Lot PSV 9105 MI1 with a Use by April 1, 2021 date, with the corrected label is NOT part of recall.

Nature’s One reportedly learned through a routine document review from a vendor that milk or a milk derivative was added to the natural flavor used in the product. Even though no milk allergen was detected through testing, labeling laws require milk to be listed in the “contains” statement.

Consumers who have one of the recalled lots can return the product to Nature’s One for a properly labeled replacement, discard the product or request a refund.

For more information, please contact Nature’s One at 1-888-227-7122 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday or send an email to [email protected]
