Food Standards Australian New Zealand has issued a recall of Vitality Bakehouse brand 210g gluten-free cookies, in Chocolate Mint and Vanilla Honey cookies, due to the detection of gluten in the product.

The recall applies to all best-before dates for the product, across Victoria, NSW, the ACT, Queensland and Tasmania. Any consumers who have a gluten allergy or intolerance should not consume the product.

According to FSANZ, the gluten in the cookies was detected during ‘laboratory testing’, however it is not clear whether the testing was undertaken by FSANZ or by the product’s parent company, Raffles Healthy Foods.

No other Raffles Healthy Foods products are affected by the recall. Customers should return the products to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.

Raffles Healthy Foods said that it was greatly concerned at any risk to its customers.

“This recall is being undertaken to ensure the safety of our customers as an ongoing commitment to maintain the highest possible standards of safety and product quality at all times,” said a release from the company.

    “recall” is a brilliant move. Customers health is important and cannot be taken for granted. Raffles not only should be concerned, I’m sure they will keep up their commitment.

    You have to ask yourself about this company. They are dodgy for sure!
