Stewart’s Shops Corp. of Saratoga Springs, NY, is recalling certain units of Stewart’s Sportade Fruit Punch Isotonic Beverage because they may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Approximately 1,600 units of affected product were distributed in upstate New York and Southern Vermont, and nearly half of the units had already been recovered as of Wednesday afternoon, according to the company.

The Sportade Fruit Punch is packaged in a 20-ounce plastic bottle, UPC 0 82086 31006 8, and has a black label with a red plastic cap.

Affected units have an expiration code date of DEC 02, which can be found on the neck of the bottle. All other expiration code dates of Sportade Fruit Punch are not affected by this recall.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem, the company stated.

The recall was initiated after routine quality control testing discovered that a milk allergen was in the product.

Customers who purchased Stewart’s Sportade Fruit Punch with a code date of DEC 02 are urged to return the product to their local Stewart’s Shops for a full refund.

Customers with questions may contact Stewart’s Consumer Affairs Department at 518-581-1200, ext. 2130, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
