Rice Cakes Sold at Kroger and Stop & Shop in Ohio, Recalled
Basic Grain Products, Inc., of Coldwater, Ohio, is recalling 6.56-ounce bags of Caramel Rice Cakes from Kroger and Stop & Shop brands since they may contain undeclared milk allergens.
Allergies of Milk: What Are the Consequences?
The immune system’s abnormal reaction to milk and milk-containing products is known as milk allergy. One of the most common food allergies in kids is Eczema.
Milk allergies are most often caused by cow’s milk, but they can also be caused by milk from sheep, goats, buffalo, and other mammals.
An allergic reaction to milk is most likely to occur shortly after consumption.
Wheezing, vomiting, hives, and digestive problems are some of the signs and symptoms of milk allergy, which can vary from mild to extreme.
Anaphylaxis, a serious, life-threatening reaction, can also be caused by a milk allergy.
A real milk allergy is distinct from lactose intolerance and milk protein intolerance.
Unlike milk allergy, resistance is not caused by a malfunction of the immune system. Milk sensitivity is treated differently than real milk allergy.
After consuming milk or products containing milk, digestive issues such as bloating, gas, or diarrhea are common signs and symptoms of milk protein intolerance or lactose intolerance.
The main cure for milk allergy is to avoid milk and milk products completely. Fortunately, the majority of children outgrow their milk allergies, and those that do not grow out of it will need to avoid milk products for the rest of their lives.
