The Double Cola Company has recalled about 200 cases of a Ski soda due to incorrect labeling, and some of the cases were delivered to places in Southern Illinois.

Some cases of Cherry Ski that feature newly-redesigned cans are being recalled because the nutrition facts are incorrect, the Chattanooga, Tennessee-based company said in a news release.

The cans show “Red #4” under ingredients, which is incorrect. The ingredients should include “Red #40” and “Yellow #5.” These dyes may cause an allergic reaction to some people.

The Double Cola Company has reported that no medical illnesses or harmful effects have resulted from this product so far. Products affected are coded "A8023EV10:25" through "A8023EV11:40."

The recall affects only Cherry Ski products with the new design that were delivered to Southern Illinois or the Evansville, Indiana, and Winchester, Ohio, markets, the company said. No other products from the Double Cola Company are being recalled.

“We took immediate action once we were aware of the situation and recalled the product,” said Gina Dhanani, vice president of Ski. “The most important thing to us is that our consumers are safe.”

Consumers who have purchased the recalled product should not open the package or consume the product, the Double Cola Company said. Instead, they should return the product to the location of purchase for a refund, or call the Double Cola Company at 423-267-5691 or 877-DBL-COLA (325-2652).
