Food Recall: Yoplait Go-Gurt and Yoplait Smackers

Posted by Isobel Drake on 8th August 2008

National Foods announced today an immediate, voluntary recall of its range of Yoplait Go-Gurt and Smackers tube products as a result of a packaging defect.

The packaging defect means there is a risk of small pieces of clear plastic film separating from the outside of the tube, which may pose a choking hazard, especially for small children.

National Foods believes the risk to be low but are recalling all potentially affected products as a precautionary measure.

The products affected are:

Yoplait Go-Gurt:
Best Before Dates – All dates up to and including 27/09/08
Yoplait Go-Gurt Spiders pack of 8x70g
Yoplait Go-Gurt Strawberry and Fruit Salad pack of 8x70g

Yoplait Smackers:
Best Before Dates – All dates up to and including 27/09/08
Yoplait Smackers Strawberry pack of 8x70g
Yoplait Smackers Peach and Pineapple pack of 8x70g

Consumers who have purchased any of these products are asked to return it to the point of purchase for a refund.

National Foods has apologised for any inconvenience caused and advise that no other products have been affected.
