Luxury grocer Woolworths has asked its customers to bring back their chicken viennas.
This includes their smoked chicken viennas, cocktail chicken viennas, and Halaal smoked chicken viennas.
Those packages marked with a sell-by date of 27 May will get a full refund from Woolworths.
Woolworths has said its recalling the specific batches in South Africa and Botswana with immediate effect. The company had detected cross-contamination of milk protein between the chicken viennas and chicken and cheese viennas.
The company announced that the products are being recalled to prevent possible adverse reactions among consumers with cow’s milk allergies.
In its statement, Woolworths highlighted its commitment to producing and selling high-quality food products.
“Woolworths prides itself on exceptionally high standards, and we go to great lengths, with very strict protocols within a rigorous food safety management process, to ensure all food we produce, package and sell is the quality our customers expect. Food safety is critically important to us, and the well-being of our customers is our first priority.”
