today I ate GOLDENVALE ® Bran and Sultanas from Aldi and on the side it had a label saying "vegetarian vegan" but after eating it I read "may contain milk" under the ingredients. should this worry me? is it cows milk?

I believe that only means it's manufactured in a factory that also works with dairy.

So dairy isn't an active ingredient in the product (as long as it doesn't appear in the ingredients), but traces of dairy may find its way into the product since it's manufactured in proximity to milk products.

It just means it was processed on equipment which also processes dairy.

I think it is required by law for people with extreme allergies who would keel over and die with even a hint of dairy (or eggs, or soy, or wheat, or nuts, etc.).
