Dairy-free yoghurt brand CoYo recalls products after they were found to contain milk

Co Yo, which was founded by a police officer while she was on maternity leave, has withdrawn all five flavours of its “dairy-free coconut milk yoghurt” because it contained “undeclared” milk.

In a message posted on Twitter, CoYo apologised, saying: “During recent product testing, a small amount of dairy has been found in our yoghurts.

“We are devastated by this, especially as being dairy-free sits at the heart of everything we do.”

The company added it had carried out a thorough review and learned that the contaminated material came from a third-party supplier. It said the recall was a “precautionary measure” and it had terminated their relationship with the supplier.

 

CoYo had advised its customers to return any yoghurts with a ‘use by’ date earlier than and including Friday 16th May to return the products to the store of purchase for a full refund:

“If you have any Co Yo products with a ‘use by’ date earlier than and including Friday 16th March, please contact the store you purchased from for a full refund. If you have any concerns about any of our products please don’t hesitate to contact us. Once again, we would like to apologise to all our customers for any concern this may have caused.”

The FSA have said: “If you have bought any of the above products and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents do not eat it.

“Instead return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

The recall applies to yoghurts with a use-by date before 16 March and with the batch codes: 180115, 180116, 180118, 180119, 180122 to 180126, 180130, 180131, 180201, 180202 and 180205 to 180209.
