Press release -
Müller Kids Corner Butterflies Strawberry Precautionary Recall
Müller Yogurt & Desserts is recalling a batch of its 4 pack Müller Kids Corner Butterflies Strawberry yogurt.
This is a precautionary measure. The action is being taken because of the potential presence of a small puck shaped disc in one pot of yogurt from the batch. The disc is pink in colour and measures 3cm by 1cm and is used to test systems on our production line which are in place to protect product quality.
The batch was manufactured at our facility in Market Drayton, Shropshire and with the exception of the single pot which contains the disc it should be stressed that all other pots from the batch are unaffected and entirely safe to eat.
No other Müller Yogurt & Desserts products are known to be affected.
The FSA has issued a Product Information Recall Notice.
The product being recalled is:
Product: 4 pack Müller Kids Corner Butterflies
Brand: Müller Kids Corner
Pack size: 4x135g
Best Before: 27.4.16
Please contact us at:
Address: Müller Yogurt & Desserts, Shrewsbury Road, Shropshire, TF9 3SQ
This is an isolated incident, and an extensive investigation by Müller Yogurt & Desserts Quality Team is under way.
