Allergen Recall: Aldi's Chicken and Bacon Layered Salad


Intro

Aldi's Chicken and Bacon Layered Salad


Aldi is recalling there Chicken and Bacon Layered Salad because it contains milk which is not declared on the label. This could cause a health issue to those that have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk derivatives.

Food Allergies


Food allergies are caused by the body mistakenly making an antibody (IgE) to fight off a specific molecule present in the food that is consumed. For some people, just contact with the skin can create this autoimmune reaction, which then leads to the body releasing large amounts of histamine and other substances.

Symptoms can be varied, depending on where in the body these antibodies are released. When they are released throughout the whole body, this causes a systemic reaction, which can be life threatening and lead to anaphylactic shock (also called anaphylaxis).

Milk Allergy


With milk allergies, the immune system overreacts to certain proteins in the milk. This allergic response tends to happen very rapidly - although the exact time can depend on what other foods were consumed at the same time and how long the digestion takes. A milk allergy can cause anaphylaxis in about 1-2 % of cases, according to Wikipedia.

Lactose Intolerance


There are also people who suffer from lactose intolerance, caused by an inability to digest lactose, which is found in milk and milk products. Their symptoms could include abdominal pain, bloating and gas, diarrhea and nausea. These tend to start within an hour or two after the person drinks milk or eats milk products.
