If you have an allergy to dairy or are not comfortable with eating any amount of dairy and you have a pint from one of the affected batches, please discard your pint or return it to the store where you purchased it. We are so sorry if we let you down and have doubled down in our commitment to providing you with the safest product possible. Please reach out if you have any additional questions.
