Woolworths labelling error prompts nationwide recall

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 26th March 2012

Australian supermarket chain Woolworths has recalled two cupcake mixes from stores nationwide over fears they contain undeclared traces of milk and nuts following a labelling error.

The products in question are Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Devil’s Food Cupcakes (mix) and Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Confetti Cupcakes (mix). Both products are available in Woolworths, Safeway, Food For Less, and Flemings Supermarkets nationwide.

The products in question are sold in 255g red cardboard boxes. They are imported from the USA but Woolworths said it is responsible for the labelling error. The recall applies to products with all ‘best before’ dates.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has advised that consumers with a milk or tree nut allergy or intolerance to return the product to one of the stores for a refund.
