Before you dunk that next Oreo cookie, you might want to be be aware of the recall that has forced Mondelex Global (formally known as Nabisco Brands) to voluntarily pull two varieties of the popular cookie off the shelves across the country, including at stores in the Greater Binghamton area.

If you are allergic to dairy this may especially be a problem as the company failed to list milk on the package ingredient list.

“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product,” the company wrote in a press release.
