Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Chai Tea is subject to this recall:

  • Mandala Chai and Mandala Chai Pure, both sold in 150 gram packages

Please consult the photograph above for details of the drink’s packaging, design and retail presentation. An additional variation of the recalled Chai Tea is pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, the recall is due to the presence of a dairy allergen in a product specifically marked as being “dairy free”. Although Sodium Caseinate is listed as an ingredient on all packaging, consumers may mot necessarily know and be sufficiently warned that this substance has a dairy component and therefore, could produce an allergic reaction in those allergic to milk or milk ingredients.

==> For information about Milk Allergy or Lactose Intolerance, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession either of these recalled Mandala Chai Products and could be allergic to their milk ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Please note: this product is also not suitable for Vegans in that one of its ingredients, specifically Sodium Caseinate, is made from cow or other ruminant-based milk.
