Vegan Chocolate Recalled Due to Presence of Milk Allergen

The Cruelty Free Shop Limited is recalling a specific batch of Holy Cow brand Golden Crunch Vegan Honeycomb Coated in Dark Chocolate due to incorrect labelling about the presence of an allergen (milk). People with a milk allergy should not consume these products.

The following product and batch number has been recalled:

Holy Cow brand Golden Crunch Vegan Honeycomb Coated in Dark Chocolate (150g)

Batch 21309 - Best Before 03/08/2022


If you have consumed this product and have any concerns about your health, seek medical advice. If you are not allergic to milk, this recall does not affect you.

This product is sold at The Cruelty Free Shop, also known as the Vegan Shop in Ponsonby, Auckland. The product is also sold at The Cruelty Free Shop online store.

The product is labelled with 'may contain traces of milk'. However, following an allergic reaction overseas, it appears milk is present at levels higher than what would be expected as a trace level.

Other allergens are also noted on the label.

This recall does not affect any other Holy Cow brand products.

Customers are asked to check the batch and date mark on the front of the packet.
