People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recall is for all of the individual bottles with the “Best By” date of 12-15-15 or before (earlier), and which do not have corrected labels indicating that the product contains soy.
