There has been a Kashi GoLean recall. I eat a lot of Kashi foods and the company issued the recall because its Kashi GoLean Chocolate Energy Shake mix contained milk – specifically whey caseinate. This ingredient wasn’t mentioned on the canister and folks with a milk allergy might be affected.
How To Identify The Affected Kashi Kashi GoLean Canisters
+ Size: 14.8 ounces
+ Bar code: 18627 71000
+ Look for: “Better if Used by Date” on the bottom of the GoLean canister
+ Dates: January 17, 2009 & November 15, 2009
Since I consume a lot of Kashi foods, am I turned off by this Kashi Go Lean recall? Not at all. The recall was issued voluntarily by the company. They are taking responsibility and acting to solve the problem – if it is, indeed, a problem at all since no allergic reactions have been discovered. If you are a person with a milk allergy, take note. For the rest of us, it’s a non-issue.
