Popular almond milk brands have recalled their products over contamination concerns.

“This recall includes an earlier recall by RIO Coffee of MILKLAB Almond Milk with a Best Before date of 6 AUG 2021 in SA - this recall has been removed from the website,” the recall explained.

“MILKLAB Almond Milk has been available for sale nationally in various coffee shops and food service outlets.”

The best before dates on the MILKLAB product are the 18 June, 01 July, 20 July, 29 July and 6 August in 2021.

“Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Chocolate Almond Milk has been available for sale in NSW (Coles and Woolworths), QLD (Coles and Woolworths), SA (Coles), TAS (Coles), VIC (Coles and Woolworths) and WA (Coles and Woolworths),” the recall also stated.
