A Wisconsin company issued a voluntary recall on one of its cheese spread products because the items may contain a soy ingredient not declared on the label.

According to a release from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Brunkow Cheese of Darlington, Wisconsin has voluntarily recalled its eight-ounce containers of Fayette Creamery brand Jalapeno Pepper Raw Milk Cheddar Cold Pack Cheese Spread because the product may contain a soy ingredient.

The FDA said people who have allergies or severe sensitivities to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled cheese was distributed nationwide to retail stores, through direct sales on the Brunkow Cheese company premises and at farmers’ markets.

The items have one of the following sell-by-dates and codes on the bottom of the eight-ounce containers:
