Allergen statement - update to Yogo mix

(1)  Yogo Mix Choc 250g  (Best Before Date 23/03/17 and onwards)

(2)  Yogo Mix M&M’s 250g  (Best Before Date 13/03/17 and onwards)

Lion Dairy & Drinks who owns and manufactures products under the Yogo brand has brought a new ingredient into its dairy foods manufacturing site in Morwell, Victoria.

Whilst this ingredient is not used in the Yogo recipe after evaluating the risk of cross contact between this ingredient and Yogo products, we have  added “sesame” to the may be present statement on all Yogo Mix product packaging to best inform consumers and to keep them safe. 

The labeling on Yogo Mix Choc 250g and Yogo Mix M&M’s 250g has been updated to include “sesame” in the may be present statement which consumers who have a sesame allergy need to be aware of.

No other Yogo products are affected. Yogo multipacks are made on a different line and are not affected by this change.

We have updated our statement language to be in line with the Voluntary Incidental Trace Allergen Labeling (VITAL) tool. The new tubs will be used in production from February and will affect products from the below Best Before dates:

(1)  Yogo Mix Choc 250g  (Best Before Date 23/03/17 and onwards)

(2)  Yogo Mix M&M’s 250g  (Best Before Date 13/03/17 and onwards)

Is the sesame relating to sesame oil or particulate?

– Particulate

What is the level of sesame?

As assessed with the Voluntary Incidental Trace Allergen Labeling (VITAL) tool we are required to label sesame as may be present.

Product quality is Lion Dairy & Drinks’ core promise to our customers and the millions of people who enjoy our nutritious dairy products every day.  From the farm gate through to manufacturing and distribution, we adhere to rigorous testing and quality standards.

We would like to reassure our consumers that no other Yogo products made at our Morwell dairy manufacturing site are affected. It is only the line that produces our Yogo ‘Mix’ products that will be impacted.

We have tested the line and the surrounding environment to ensure our cleaning practices will reduce levels of allergens as much as possible. We have also consulted industry bodies and technical experts to ensure we are complying with best practice.
