Hiland Dairy has issued a recall for chocolate milk that was handed out to students in several Oklahoma school districts.

This recall is for Hiland's half-pint, 1% low-fat chocolate milk with a sell-by date of January 27th.

The products came from the company's Norman facility and were handed out at Edmond, Deer Creek, and Piedmont schools.

Hiland officials said that the facility failed to follow protocols which led to a batch of the milk becoming contaminated with food-grade sanitizers, which could make people sick if consumed.

The affected areas include the Oklahoma City metro, Western Oklahoma, Dallas, San Antonio, and Tyler, Texas.

Hiland said that in total, only eight cases of milk were contaminated. However, they were mixed in with a group of 48,000 cases that each contained 50 chocolate milks.
