The smoothie location:

Surf City Squeeze
865 Market St, 101 Clay St, other locations..
415 543-1435, 415 398-8888, ..

Has a "non-dairy" smoothie mix that contains milk protein.

Notice "non-dairy Smoothie Mix" on their website pages: profile, menu

I think they used to have ingredients on their website, but they've taken them down.

See the Casein page for more info.

2002/12/01: I had a "non-dairy" smoothie at Surf City Squeeze on Market. It tasted a little too dairy, and finally I got suspicious enough to double check, I asked the counter workers again if it was non-dairy like the menu said, and they said it was. I noticed they sell the mix, and I asked to see the ingredients, and sure enough it contained Casein. Unfortunately I had already finished 2/3rds of the smoothie, and so the next morning I was extremely ill, as I normally get when I ingest casein.

2003/08/25: Received mail from Rachel Ouellet (rachael.ouellet They wrote Surf City and they acknowledged that the label was a bit inaccurate but it met FDA guidelines. They are working on removing the non-dairy print from their stores (this was about a month ago)

Perhaps it's time to change things at the FDA?
