Lifestyle Evolution Inc. has voluntarily recalled a number of its NuGO nondairy bars because the products contain milk, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Individuals with allergies to dairy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing milk protein, according to the FDA. (Lactose intolerance is not a milk allergy and should not be confused with a milk protein allergy.)
