Since those who must follow gluten-free diets often must follow casein-free, lactose-free, dairy free diets as well, information about non-gluten recalls can also be important to health. On May 30, 2010, Better Made Snack Foods of Detroit, Michigan is issuing a voluntary recall only of their Better Made 3-ounce Original Potato Sticks because it may contain undeclared dairy.
