Coles branded Tomato Paste in 170g and 500g urgently pulled from supermarket shelves


Urgent recall for popular Coles product sold throughout Australia – and it applies to every one of the items sold in the past 12 months

  • Coles Tomato Paste in 170g and 500g containers were recalled on Tuesday 
  • All Coles Tomato Paste with a best before date from July 2021 are impacted 
  • Those with a soy allergy should not eat the bars and return it for a full refund

An urgent recall has been issued for Coles tomato paste sold in the last 12 months after the popular pantry item puts Australians at risk of an allergic reaction.  

The major supermarket has recalled its own-brand cans of Tomato Paste in 170g and 500g containers after the product was found to contain soy – an ingredient not specified on the label. 

The product was sold at online and at Coles supermarkets and Coles Local stores across the country.

Shoppers who have a soy allergy or intolerance are urged to return the tomato paste to a Coles supermarket for a full refund. 

Customers who bought the paste online are encouraged to contact Coles Online Customer Care for a full refund or credit. 

Coles has issued an apology to its shoppers for the inconvenience.
