 A food recall is issued when a discovery is made that a product is unsafe for consumers. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) as well as the supermarkets themselves have listed the new recalls currently in place.

Danone is recalling three of its yoghurt products due to the possible presence of metal.

The possible presence of metal means the dairy products are unsafe for customers to consume. 

Customers who have purchased any of the recalled dairy products should not eat them and return them for a refund. 

Danone have said that no receipt is needed for a full refund.

The company is recalling its Light and Free Peach Passion Fruit Greek Style Yoghurt 4x115g with the use by date of March 31, 2021. 

The use by date can be found on the top of the pack.

One batch of Active Vanilla 0% Fat – NO Added Sugar Yoghurt 4x120g is also being recalled.

Customers should look for the best before date of April 2, 2021 and no other dates are affected.
