Coles is recalling three frozen pizza varieties which are branded as "suitable for vegans" after it was found they contain dairy. 

The pizzas being recalled are Coles Nature’s Kitchen Meat-free Hawaiian Style Pizza 250gm, Coles Nature’s Kitchen Meat-free Meat Lovers Pizza 250gm and Coles Nature’s Kitchen Supreme Veggie Pizza 250gm.

The recall is applicable for all best before dates on the pizzas.

Food Standards Australia and New Zealand said the products had been available Coles Supermarkets, Coles Local stores and Coles online across Australia.

"The recall is due to the presence of an undeclared allergen – dairy – which has not been specified on the label," Coles said in a statement.

"The label also incorrectly advises the product is 'suitable for vegans'."

Coles said the affected products have been available in stores since February 2021 and warns customers who have a dairy allergy or intolerance may have a reaction.

"Coles Online customers can receive a full refund or credit by contacting Coles Online Customer Care on 1800 455 400.

"We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience."
