EDITOR’S NOTE: This story has been corrected. A previous version incorrectly said there were six Canadian Whole Foods locations — all in Ontario.

Whole Foods is recalling some sandwich cookies over concerns they could contain undeclared milk.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Friday that two varieties of 365 Everyday Value brand Dark Chocolate Sandwich Crèmes — peppermint and caramel sea salt — may contain dairy that is not mentioned on the product’s label.

Those with milk allergies should not consume the cookies as they may cause a “serious or life-threatening reaction,” the agency said.

So far, no Canadians have reported suffering reactions but in the U.S., where the product faces a similar recall due to undeclared dairy or coconut, two reactions have been reported.

Whole Foods has locations in the Greater Toronto Area and B.C. But, the CFIA warns, the products may have been available nationally through online sales.

Whole Foods is removing the product from store shelves, CFIA said.

More information about the recall is available on the CFIA website.
