Hi Everyone, I use SFH all the time and have not had any allergic reaction to milk. However, apparently, it is labeled incorrectly and they are in the process of fixing it.
Here is the press release.
URGENT: WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATES UNDECLARED ALLERGENS
September 21, 2012:
We are announcing a voluntary recall of Whey Protein Concentrates sold under the following brands as the label fails to declare the allergens: milk, shellfish and coconut.
