A recall has been issued for a popular taco kit sold at major supermarkets across Australia, with consumers urged not to eat it.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand said the affected 350-gram Old El Paso Hard ‘n Soft taco kit had been sold at Coles and Woolworths in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory and ACT.
Manufactured by General Mills Australia, the kits were also sold at independent retailers such as IGA in Tasmania and Queensland.
Affected kits have a use-by date of June 30, 2024.
FSANZ said the recall was due to some taco kits containing an incorrect sachet, which contains an undeclared allergen (milk).
“Consumers who have a milk allergy or intolerance should not consume Old El Paso Hard ‘n Soft Taco Kit 350-grams containing a sachet labelled ‘Ckn Ndle’,” the agency said on Thursday.
“Consumers may return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.”
Anyone who has a milk allergy or intolerance may have a reaction if they consume the product.
