A vegan chocolate company is recalling some of its kid’s products sold at Woolworths and Big W stores across the country.

Health Lab Kid’s Mylk Zillions 100g, Whyte Zillions 100g and Mixed Kwalas 96g are being pulled from shelves in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia after Food Standards said on Friday they found traces of milk.

“Consumers who have a milk allergy or intolerance should not consume this product and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund,” Food Standards said in an alert.

Affected items have a date stamp of August 23 2022 or October 23 2022 and the batch numbers are 0112 or 0113.

Health Lab, which makes products in Victoria, said on its website that none of its other products have been affected.

“Our Kokonut Ruffs and Karamel Krunch Kwalas are safe for consumption,” their recall alert reads.

“Please always refer to the ingredients list and may contain call outs to ensure they are suitable for you or your child.

“We are currently working closely with the Victorian Department of Health and the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) to investigate how this event occurred and manage this recall process.”

The Health Lab also said on its website that all of their products are “100 per cent plant-based” but they do share a facility with dairy-based ingredients.
