Boots Multivitamins

Boots has recalled Boots Multivitamins supplements because they have been incorrectly packed with multivitamins containing iron.

This resulted in vitamin K not being present within the supplement and iron incorrectly added to the supplements instead. Iron has not been mentioned on the label.

This means the product is a possible health risk to individuals who may also be consuming iron supplements in addition to these multivitamins.

This affects multivitamins sold between 12 and 19 January 2021 only.

Pack size: 180 tablets

Batch code: 1805 and 1806

Best before: end of November 2022

Yoghurts

General Mills UK is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Yop Strawberry 6 x 500g with Best Before date 6th Feb 2021.

The recall is being carried out due to the incorrect language appearing on the pack, meaning that the allergens are not correctly declared in English.

There is no food safety risk associated with this batch of product.

  • Date Code: 6th Feb 2021
  • Price: 50p
  • Barcode: 332977001449

No other products or date codes have been affected.

If you have purchased Yoplait YOP Strawberry 6X500g with a date code of 6th Feb 2021, please bring it back to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund. You do not need your receipt.

As a precautionary measure, Lactalis Nestlé Chilled Dairy UK is voluntarily recalling Nestle Milkybar Little Treats with the specific use-by February 13 and February 14 due to a strong unpleasant salty taste caused by an ingredient which is part of the normal composition but that has overdosed in the production of these batches.

There is no food safety or health risk but the impact on taste can be unpleasant to consumers.

The ‘use by’ date can be found printed on the top of the pot lid.

Any consumers who have bought packs with the above use-by date should not consume them and dispose of the contents, but return the top of pot lid with this use by date for a full refund to: Freepost Nestle UK Consumer Services, Nestle Milkybar Little Treats Recall, PO BOX 205, York, YO91 1XY.

If you have any questions, please contact the Nestlé Customer Careline on Freephone on 0800 00 00 30 in the UK between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday.

Sweets

Iceland has also issued a recall for sweets as they contain milk not mentioned on the label, reports the Express.

The supermarket chain issued a warning for Stockley’s Fruit Sherbets.

The affected packs have the best before dates of February 2022 and March 2022 and they may be unsafe for anyone with an intolerance to milk.

The Iceland website states: “We are recalling the product as it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk products.

“All consumers who have bought this product with the date code/s listed, should not consume them. Please return to any Iceland store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.”

Food recalls are not issued very often but should be taken seriously by consumers.

When a possible risk is identified in a product it can be “recalled” or “withdrawn”, and taken off shelves.
