Müller Fruit Corner, Müllerlight, Müller Rice and Müller Bliss Mascarpone Style Yogurt precautionary recall

Press release   •   Feb 05, 2020 14:51 GMT

As a precautionary measure Müller is recalling some batches of Müller Fruit Corner and Müllerlight, Müller Bliss Mascarpone and Müller Rice, due to the possible presence of small pieces of metal in the product.

The decision follows the identification of a fault with a roller supporting belts used to transport fruit in its factory. The roller was misaligned potentially causing small pieces of metal to drop into the fruit.

Müller has stressed that it has not detected any metal in samples from the affected batches. But the company has taken the precautionary measure of recalling certain products made during the period when this manufacturing fault developed.

The products being recalled are:

No other Müller products are affected. Müller has informed the Food Standards Agency of this action and they have issued a Product Information Recall Notice. More information can be found at: http://www.food.gov.uk/

Consumers have been asked not to eat affected products, and to return them to the store where they were purchased for a refund. Members of the public who are concerned can also contact Müller’s consumer care team directly at: consumers@muller.co.uk or 01630 692000.
