NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – Hiland Dairy recalled a batch of their one-half pint (236 mL) 1% Low Fat Chocolate Milk Sunday.

In a press release, Hiland Dairy said that the recall is specifically for a batch that was produced at its Norman facility. The company says that some of the products may contain “food-grade sanitizers,” which could cause illness if consumed.

The products were sold and distributed to institutional customers in the Oklahoma City metro area and western Oklahoma. Other locations include: Dallas, San Antonio and Tyler, Texas.

Now, school districts across the state are scrambling to find all of the products.

Officials with the Deer Creek Public School District say the recalled milk may have been sent home with food deliveries last week.

The product information is detailed below:
