Health - Turkey Products Recall

I don't understand this, but Ian's Natural Foods is recalling 13,000 lb of these frozen turkey products:
because they may contain nonfat milk, which was not declared on the label.

The recall involved 8-ounce boxes of Ian's Popcorn Turkey Corn Dogs, Crispy Batter Dipped Turkey Dogs with the establishment number P-19011 and a packaging date of 07099, 07114, 07120 or 07173. The product was sent to distribution centers in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Texas and Washington.

Also recalled were 8-ounce boxes of Ian's Batter Dipped Turkey Sausage Dogs, Product of USA, with the number P-19011 and the packaging date of 07137. The product was exported to Canada.

Additional information can be obtained by calling the company at 978-989-0601.
Okay, someone enlighten me. Why on earth would they recall a product that is perfectly safe but omits to mention milk in the label? I'd understand if the omitted item has the potential for life-threatening allergic reactions (like most nuts), but to the best of my knowledge, milk's effects are relatively mild.

Maybe they have to recall because they're supposed to warn because of people with lactose intolerance?

On the other hand, I think it should be recalled as a general health hazard “Ian's Popcorn Turkey Corn Dogs, Crispy Batter Dipped Turkey Dogs …Ian's Batter Dipped Turkey Sausage Dogs …” Just ‘cause someone puts “natural” in the product name does not make it healthy. Those products sound like diverticulitis and heart attacks waiting to happen!
