Vegan ice cream recalled due to milk contamination fears

A vegan ice cream product has had to be recalled around the country, due to fears multiple batches were contaminated with milk.

‘Aurora Foods’ has recalled two different vegan sorbets from shelves, including its ‘Vegan Cookies Coconut Dairy Free Gelato’, and its ‘Vegan Lemon Gluten and Dairy Free Sorbet’.

It’s understood the product is currently sold at some IGAs in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.


Some delis and cafe may also stock the product.

Customers who have a milk allergy or intolerance are being told not to consume the product if in doubt.

Though Aurora Foods has assured consumers that if they are allergic, the result would not cause harm.

“The amount detected will not harm anybody allergic to dairy.

“Although the dairy amount detected is at a microscopic level, Australian food standards state that there is to be no detection of dairy in such a product.

“We are reviewing our systems to ensure this does not happen again. We apologise for any inconvenience we have caused our customers,” Aurora Foods post reads.

Consumers and stores are being urged to check their product immediately, searching for the gelato with a use by day of 27.02.21 and the sorbet with a use by day of 8.03.21 and 29.04.21.

The product can be returned for a full refund.
