Clive’s Cake Organic Chocolate Brownie

Clive’s Cake Organic Chocolate Brownies are being recalled because they may contain the allergen milk, which is not mentioned on the label.

Milk Allergen

In some people, their immune system overreacts to certain proteins in the milk - this can result in an allergy to milk, dairy and other milk-derivatives. This allergic response tends to happen very rapidly - although the exact response can depend on what other foods were consumed at the same time and how long their digestion takes. According to Wikipedia, a milk allergy causes anaphylaxis in about 1-2 % of cases.

Lactose Intolerance

There are also people who suffer from lactose intolerance. This is caused by an inability to digest lactose - which is found in milk and other milk products. The symptoms often include abdominal pain, bloating and gas, diarrhea and nausea, starting within an hour or two after the person consumes milk products.

They also have a clear recall notice on their own home page (which is great, as many companies do not put information regarding the recall on their website at all).
