  • Contact/attend each premises that imports food in your municipality, starting with the ones identified in the Department of Agriculture Spreadsheet, and ascertain if they import, or have imported in the last two years, any coconut milk drinks, coconut milk juices, coconut milk powders and/or coconut cream powders which are not on the list of products already tested and found to be negative for dairy – refer to List A spreadsheet.

  • If they do, please ascertain whether any of the products they import have already been recalled by another importer – refer to the consumer level recalls on the FSANZ website at Please also be aware that FSANZ does not publish Trade Level Food Recalls on its website. We have therefore listed the Trade Level Recalls to date at the end of this information sheet – there is only one so far.

  • If your importer does import an already recalled product, and there is nothing on the label to indicate the presence of dairy, your importer will also need to recall this product. Please immediately advise Elliot Hill (details below) and refer the importer to the FSANZ recall action officer on (02) 6271-2610.

  • Please also ascertain whether your importer imports any other coconut milk drinks, coconut milk juices, coconut milk powders and/or coconut cream powders which either make a “dairy free” claim or have no mention of dairy on their label, and which are not on either List A or List B. If so, we need you to please obtain samples of these product(s) for dairy testing, as follows:

  • Obtain clear photographs of each product – clearly showing the name of the product and the ingredients list. Email these to Elliot Hill (details below).

  • Quantities required - numerous batches, where possible, for each product. For the drinks - two drinks per batch is one sample; for the powders, five packets per batch is one sample.

  • Deliver to National Measurement Institute (NMI) at 1/153 Bertie St, Port Melbourne VIC 3207.<br>

  • Complete your council sampling paperwork so that each product is tested for both the presence and levels of both beta-lactoglobulin and casein. Please ensure you tick the “state-wide sampling” box on your sampling form and please also state “Victorian Imported Coconut Product Survey” on the form.

  • Ask the importer to assemble a distribution list of each product tested whilst testing is occurring, so that this is ready to go in case a recall is required.

  • Where an importer advises you that they had stock but it has now been sold and is in trade, please obtain and email Elliot Hill their customer list for each product to enable sampling from the next customer.
