A coconut yoghurt sold in five states has been recalled over concerns it contains the very allergen the packaging claims it doesn’t contain.
Nakula Plant Based Probiotic Coconut Yoghurt, produced by Noosa Hinterland Pty on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, is the subject of the recall.
Authorities hold concerns the 500g tubs of the natural product — with batch number T2F282 — may contain milk.
That’s despite packaging clearly stating the product is dairy-free.
It is sold in Coles and Woolworths supermarkets in New South Wales, and in Woolworths supermarkets in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, and Western Australia.
The recall notice doesn’t cover this, but the yoghurt also claims to be vegan, and a milk contamination would also make this product unsuitable for vegans.

Food Standards Australia, who handle the nation’s food recalls, said: “Any consumers who have a milk allergy or intolerance may have a reaction if the product is consumed.”
“Consumers who have a milk allergy or intolerance should not consume this product and should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund,” said Food Standards in the recall notice.
The yoghurt is made in Australia from fewer than 10 per cent Australian ingredients, because coconuts are not commercially grown in Australia.
