This is an urgent recall alert for parents who’ve purchased fruit shoot drinks at McDonalds, Costco and Tesco recently!
The spout within the bottle cap of the apple & blackcurrant flavour fruit shoot is thought to be a choking risk on the recalled batch, which has led to the FSA (Food Standards Agency) recalling them. You can read their offical recall statement here.
Which batches are affected?
The product recalled is the 200ml apple & blackcurrant flavour, sold in multi-packs of 24 bottles at Costco and Tesco, and as single bottles at McDonald’s between June 22 and 28, with a best before date of end of March 2020.
The affected batch code numbers are N06 L9171, N05 L9164 and N05 L9171.
What should I do if I have an affected product?
If you’ve purchased this product, you can contact Robinson’s here. Don’t allow your child to drink it.
Britvic PLC, who own Robinson’s, have released the following statement;
Paul Graham, managing director of Britvic in the UK, said: “We always put the health and safety of consumers first.
“Accordingly, as soon as we were made aware of a packaging issue, we took steps immediately to minimise any potential risk to consumers.
We identified the specific multipacks affected and, through our initial work, we were able to reduce the number of retailers impacted to three.
We are working with them to withdraw the packs and inform consumers, and we will continue to do so.”
Please share this information with other parents and care givers to ensure no one has any accidents with the faulty batch!
