"Not suitable for milk allergy sufferers" ?!?!?!

There are NO milk ingredients or lactose and no cautionary warning of "May contain milk" but states "Not suitable for milk allergy sufferers"... I am so confused!

That doesnt make ANY sense!

I have discovered this on both Rich tea biscuits and also readybrek (supermarket's own). Can someone please explain this to me?

It means the factory they come from contains milk. Cross contamination risk. Very occasionally i react to something which may contain milk but not badly enough for me to avoid

Chelle792 Thanks for the explanation. It is just a variation then on "may contain milk"?

Yes it is, just a warning for people with severe reactions. Normally the recipes milk free but the machinery is used for products containing milk so they can guarantee no milk traces from the production
