A popular line of vegetable burger patties are being recalled over fears they pose a health risk to people with a wheat or gluten allergy.
In a recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website, Coles states that they are recalling their ready to cook curried pumpkin and corn burgers with a best before date of 2/11/16 and 9/11/16 due to the presence of an undeclared allergen.
“The recall is due to the presence of an undeclared allergen – gluten from wheat, due to an incorrect back label,” the recall notice reads.

“Any consumers who have a wheat or gluten allergy or intolerance may have a reaction if the product is consumed.”
Customers who have a gluten or wheat allergy or intolerance have been warned not to consume the product and to return it to their nearest Coles Supermarket for a full refund.
The recalled burger patties were sold at Bi-Lo Supermarkets in Queensland, Coles Supermarkets and Coles Online in Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria and Tasmania
