Macro Certified Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk has been available for sale at Woolworths stores in Victoria only, and Macro Certified Organic Naturally Sweet Rice Milk has been available for sale at Woolworths stores in New South Wales and Queensland.

The products were available for sale between April 6, 2022, to April 19, 2022.

Customers who have a milk allergy or intolerance should not consume this product and should return it to their nearest Woolworths Supermarket or Metro Stores for a full refund, Food Standards Australia said.

Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.

Coles coconut milk recalled for containing milk

Earlier in the month an urgent recall was issued for Coles-brand coconut milk, due to milk being found.

The supermarket said the Coles Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk, 1 Litre, with the Best Before date of 31 March 2023 is being recalled.

"The recall is due to the presence of an undeclared allergen – milk – which has not been specified on the label," the press release said.

"The label also incorrectly advises the product is 'Dairy Free' and 'Vegan'."

The milk impacted by the recall was sold at Coles supermarkets, Coles Local and through Coles online in Victoria.
