Two varieties of a dip are being recalled due to an undisclosed allergen being discovered while products were being tested.
Food Standards Australia put out the recall notice for the two vegan dips made by Chris' Foods on Friday.
The products have been sold at independent supermarkets across NSW, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia, including IGA.
The products were found to have an undeclared allergen in them, casein (milk protein).
