Urgent recall on kids’ snack as shards of metal found in yoghurt tubes

The maker of a yoghurt brand has issued an urgent recall on a kids’ snack as shards of metal were found inside.

Yoplait have recalled the variety pack of Frubes – small tubes of fruit-flavoured yoghurt aimed at children.

The company is recalling its Frubes strawberry, red berry and peach variety pack – which contain nine tubes – because of the issue, the Daily Mirror reports.

A Yoplait statement said: "Although only a small number of products are expected to be affected, Yoplait is recalling the full range of this product, with the listed use by date, putting customers safety as our ultimate priority."

Worried parents will know if they have a pack of contaminated Frubes because it will have the expiry date of February 9, 2022.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) regulator said: "Small metal pieces have been found in the peach flavour within the multipack which makes this product unsafe to eat."

All stores that sell the problematic Frubes will put up signs letting customers know about the recall.

The FSA said that customers who bought the contaminated Frubes should return them to the store from where it was bought for a full refund, without needing a receipt.

"If you have this product, with a use by date of 09.02.2022 and it was purchased from the Co-op or a local convenience store, please return it to the store where it was bought for a full refund. No other Yoplait or Frubes products are affected by this recall."
