Coles Express has announced a recall of its house-brand beef pies that were accidentally filled with bacon and egg.
The “Coles Express Big Yum Beef Pie (175g) sold warm and ready to eat nationally at Coles Express outlets has been recalled by the supermarket giant. The pies in question have been on sale since September 1, 2018 and carry the batch number “235/18” on the wrapper.
“The recall has been issued after Coles Express’ supplier inadvertently filled a number of Coles Express Big Yum Beef Pie (175g) wrappers with the Coles Express Big Yum Bacon and Egg Pie (175g) from the same range,” a Coles statement read.
“As a result, some Coles Express Big Yum Beef Pie products contain the incorrect product, which contains a higher quantity of egg than declared on the label. Consumers who have an egg allergy or intolerance may have a reaction if they consume the product.”
Coles Express has apologised to its customers, who can return the improperly-labelled pies to any Coles Express site for a full refund.
“Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice,” Coles said.
