Woolworths is recalling 12 of their ice-cream and sorbet products that could have potentially been produced in packaging with inconsistent peanut allergen labelling.
"As an absolute precaution, Woolworths has taken a decision to rather remove all these products from their store shelves to avoid potentially putting peanut allergic customers at risk," it said in a statement on Tuesday.

Woolworths said it is committed to providing customers with sufficient and accurate product information to make informed product choices. Their product labelling includes an indication to customers that products could potentially contain food allergens, not as ingredients, but due to unavoidable cross-contact during production.
The labelling 'product made in a factory which uses peanuts' provides potentially allergic customers with guidance to make informed buying decisions. This labelling has been omitted from some of these products in error, Woolworths said.

"Customers should please check if they have any of these products without the peanut allergen labelling and return the products to our stores for a full refund."
