Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 27th February 2012

Coles supermarkets have recalled its Spicy Capsicum Dip, 200g, due to a labelling error which means sesame and tree nuts may be present in the product without having been declared in the ingredients.

The recalled product has a use-by date of 19 MAR 12 printed on the side of tub and is sold from the deli counter in Coles and BI-LO stores throughout New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT.

In a statement published on its websites, Coles said, “This could pose a health risk to customers with an allergy. Customers should not consume this product but return it to their nearest Coles or BI-LO store for a full cash refund.

“Coles takes the health and safety of our customers extremely seriously and this recall demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the highest possible standards of product quality at all times,” the Coles announcement said.
