Question: Is there milk in Tootsie Rolls?

In terms of ingredients, the original Tootsie Rolls do have milk. They also have whey which is also a dairy product. The current ingredient are as follows:
Sugar, Corn Syrup, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Condensed Skim Milk, Cocoa, Whey, Soy Lecithin, Artificial And Natural Flavors.
