A number of almond milk products are being recalled due to a potential microbial contamination, according to the Food Standards Board of ANZ.
Freedom Foods’ Milklab Almond Milk and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Chocolate Almond Milk, both of which are available across the country, are to be removed from sale immediately, the board said.
“Food products with microbial contamination may cause illness if consumed,” the recall notice said.
“Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.”
Freedom Foods said the recall was ‘precautionary’ and was limited to only five batches of its products, and said it has been working with the NSW Food Authority.
“Freedom Foods takes product quality and safety extremely seriously,” the business said in a statement.
“The issues that resulted in this recall have been fully resolved and all the MILKLAB products we produce, including new stock of MILKLAB Almond, are safe and meet our stringent quality standards.”
According to Freedom Foods there have not yet been any reports of illness linked to the products and the risk to consumer is low, but agreed that should a customer feel unwell to seek medical advice and return the product to its place of purchase for a full refund.
