Disney-branded cookies are being recalled over fears for consumers with milk allergies.

Jacobsen's Bakery brand Disney Favourites and Disney Frozen chocolate chip cookies were sold in 150g tins at Countdown supermarkets and The Warehouse.

The Danish-made biscuits have been recalled by the Ministry for Primary Industries because the packaging did not say they contained milk.

"People with a milk allergy or intolerance should not consume these product. If you have consumed this product and have any concerns about your health, seek medical advice," MPI said.

A milk allergy is different to and much more serious than lactose intolerance, which is a sensitivity to milk products.

People with milk allergies can suffer serious reactions, including anaphylaxis, which can potentially be fatal.

MPI said the recall did not affect people who are not allergic or intolerant to milk.

Consumers who are allergic or intolerant should return the product to their retailer for a full refund.
