Before you dip that chocolate chip cookie in your tea you might want to check the origin - if you have a milk allergy.
Jacobsens Bakery Limited is recalling chocolate chip cookies because they contain milk but do not list milk as an ingredient on the label.
The cookies affected are contained in Disney chocolate chip cookie tins.
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has issued an alert to consumers.
"[Not listing milk as an ingredient] may make the mislabelled product unsafe for consumers who are allergic or intolerant of milk or its constituents," reads a statement on their website.
The cookies affected are:
Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse tins; pack size: 300g
Disney Favourites Vol 2 tins; pack size: 150g
Disney Favourites Vol 3 tins; pack size: 150g
Disney Frozen tins; pack size: 150g
All Best Before dates and all batches where milk is not listed as an ingredient on the label.
This follows a similar alert issued on March 29 regarding Baketime Ltd's Belmont Biscuits (Ginger Nuts) sold by Aldi.
"Baketime Ltd. is recalling on a precautionary basis the above six batches of ginger nuts, produced for Aldi, as they have been manufactured in unhygienic conditions," says the Food Safety Authority statement.
"Point-of-sale notices should be displayed in stores where the affected batches were sold requesting customers who have bought these batches to return them to an Aldi store.
"No other products or batch codes are affected by this recall in Ireland."
The biscuits affected are: Belmont Biscuits Ginger Nuts; pack size: 300 g; product code: 43320 - with batch code L16047, L16048, L16061, L16062, L16068, and L16069.
