A company in Austin is recalling a some of its queso dip because the packaging did not show it contained cheese.

Yes, you read it right. While most Texans know "queso" is Spanish for cheese, apparently there are quite a few folks out there who don't. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration says Texas Legend Foods is pulling their 16-ounce jars of "Silver Star Chipotle Queso Dip" because "they contain undeclared cheese, milk and eggs." The FDA says people who have allergies to cheese, milk and eggs run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.

The dip was distributed nationwide in retail stores and comes in a 16-ounce clear glass jar marked with one of the following Lot #'s: 060AFV7A, 072AFV7A, 072AFV7B, 090AFV7A, 111AFV7A. The numbers are stamped on the top of the glass jar beneath the lid. UPC CODE #819993005394. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the labeling problem.
