Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) issued an urgent recall on Tuesday evening for a popular instant noodle product sold in Australian supermarkets due to health concerns.

Sold at Harris Farm and independent grocery stores in NSW and QLD, in vending machines across the ACT and NSW, and nationally online, the instant noodles have been pulled from shelves amid safety concerns.

The affected instant noodles, marketed under HenKing Foods’ “Mr Lees Noodles Henking Coconut Chicken Laksa, 65g,” were found to contain an undeclared allergen – milk.

The FSANZ have warned consumers with a milk allergy or intolerance should not consume the product.

The product label boasts being gluten-free with “no nasties”.

The affected product currently shows as “sold out” on HenKing Foods’ website, however, at the time of publishing this story, it was still available from other retailers online.

Consumers should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.

The recall is on the product with a best before marking of 14/06/24.
