Undeclared Milk Allergen Triggers Nationwide Recall of Old El Paso Taco Kits

Old El Paso Hard 'n Soft Taco Kits, a staple in many Australian households, are being recalled nationwide due to an undeclared milk ingredient in some packages. The product, distributed in 350g kits, was found to contain a sachet incorrectly labeled 'Ckn Ndle' that includes milk — an ingredient not specified on the list. This poses a significant risk to consumers with a milk allergy or intolerance, who could have adverse reactions upon consumption.

The taco kits were sold at Woolworths and Coles stores across New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory, and Western Australia. In Tasmania, they were available at Coles and independent retailers, including IGA. The affected kits bear a 'Best Before' date of June 30, 2024.

Immediate Action for Consumers

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) and the NSW Food Authority issued the recall, urging consumers not to consume the product. Shoppers who have purchased the affected taco kits are encouraged to return them to the store from which they were bought in exchange for a full refund. Anyone concerned about potential health risks is advised to seek immediate medical advice.

Contact for Further Information

For further clarification, customers can contact General Mills Australia Pty Ltd, the company behind the Old El Paso brand, directly. As the recall unfolds, the company is expected to be working closely with retailers and regulatory authorities to ensure all affected products are swiftly removed from shelves, and that customers are adequately informed and protected.
