The Kroger Co. has issued a recall on its Private Selection Sweet Strawberry Sorbet sold at the company's Kroger and Jay C stores in 13 states because the product may contain milk not listed on the label. For consumers who are not allergic to milk, there is no safety issue.

Two Kroger customers have reported a possible allergic reaction in connection with this product, leading to the recall of Private Selection Sweet Strawberry Sorbet, sold in 16 fluid ounce packages with a code date of Aug 11, 2015 and UPC 11110 52108, due to a potential presence of a milk allergen.

Included in this recall are Kroger and Jay C stores in the following states only: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia (along the Ohio border).

Not included in this recall are Kroger stores in the company's Southwest division, which includes the states of Louisiana and Texas; and Kroger stores in the company's Mid-Atlantic division, which includes stores in North Carolina, eastern West Virginia and Virginia.

Customers in the impacted states should return the product to stores for a full refund or replacement. Kroger has removed potentially affected items from store shelves and initiated its customer recall notification system that alerts customers who may have purchased recalled Class 1 products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.
