The recall is a precautionary measure from Morrisons in order to ensure the safety of consumers. This recall affects one date code, those that have a “Use By” date of 28.9.11. The “Low Fat Fruit Yogurt” was sold under Morrisons’ private retail brand ‘Value.’ The product is sold in 4-packs and costs £0.29 per 4-pack.
Morrisons has already sent out notices informing consumers about the recall and the reason for it. These notices are displayed in stores so that consumers will be able to read it. Morrisons has also sent a notice to be posted in the national press. This notice was posted in the newspaper last September 23.
The notice also contains information on how to return the product and be given a refund. Morrisons stresses that no other product, aside from the one specified, is affected by the recall.
Customers who were able to buy the said “Low Fat Fruit Yogurt” are strongly advised to not consume the product as ingestion of small metal pieces could lead to serious health risks. Customers are instead advised to return the recalled product to the nearest Morrisons store in order to receive a refund.
Morrisons apologizes for the inconvenience that this problem has caused and assures its customers that it is continuously working to maintain its commitment to provide products in the highest standards of quality and safety.
