Woolworths is committed to providing customers with sufficient and accurate product information to make informed product choices. Their product labelling includes an indication to customers that products could potentially contain food allergens, not as ingredients, but due to unavoidable cross-contact during production.

Woolworths would like to advise customers that 12 of their ice-cream and sorbet products have potentially been produced in packaging with inconsistent peanut allergen labelling.

The labelling 'product made in a factory which uses peanuts' provides potentially allergic customers with guidance to make informed buying decisions. This labelling has been omitted from some of these products in error.

As an absolute precaution, Woolworths has taken a decision to rather remove all these products from their store shelves to avoid potentially putting peanut allergic customers at risk.

The 12 product lines affected are:

6001009028259                 Extremely Creamy Madagascan Vanilla Dairy Ice Cream

6001009028167                 32 Italian kisses

No other ice-creams or other products are affected.
