The company, based in East Hanover, New Jersey, failed to list milk as one of the ingredients of Oreo Fudge Cremes – both the original and mint variety – prompting the recall.

The voluntary recall affects cookies sold in the United States, Puerto Rico, St. Croix and St. Thomas.

“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product,” the company wrote in a press release.

As of Monday morning, one person has reported an allergic reaction, the release said.

Mondelēz is recalling the products out of an “abundance of caution,” noting that the packaging already contains a warning that the cookies are “manufactured on equipment that processes milk.”
