Product Recall – Double Choc Chip; Chocolate Chip

Kea Cookies have taken the decision to recall the range of Chocolate Chip and Double Choc Chip products. There may be traces of dairy in these products and they may not be suitable for those sensitive to milk or vegans.

 

This does not affect those who are coeliac or gluten intolerant, or have an allergy or intolerance to eggs.

 

This decision was taken following recent routine sample testing undertaken on an ingredient, which returned a positive result for a non-declared allergen (milk). The ingredient has been used in the past with no recorded issues, so we were disappointed to find the levels of dairy on the samples tested were above the levels for dairy free. We are continuing to look at a replacement dairy free ingredient so there may be some variation in the appearance of our Chocolate Chip and Double Choc Chip cookies in the next little while.

 

There have been no reports of illness. However, anyone concerned about their health should seek medical advice. People with milk allergies or intolerances can return the product to the store where it was purchased for a refund.

 

This recall does not affect consumers that do not have a sensitivity to milk nor does it extend to the other products in the Kea Cookies range, only Chocolate Chip and Double Choc Chip.

The wellbeing of our Kea Cookies customers is at the heart of this decision to recall. We greatly appreciate your support of our proudly Kiwi business, bringing you delicious homestyle cookies since 1988.
