According to the brand, a small number of packs may contain the “presence of milk” which is not declared on the packaging.

The protein balls are also advertised as vegan, therefore the milk inclusion may present a concern for those who avoid animal products.

This could pose a potential health risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk constituents.

The affected products are all labelled with the use-by of January 2021.

Achachi Jelly Cups

Yekta Foods is recalling jelly-based sweets Achachi Jelly Cups over concerns of a choking hazard.

This is because the products contain carrageenan which is not permitted as an ingredient in jelly confectionery products as it presents a choking hazard. The firm has warned consumers may have purchased the jelly cups individually meaning items will not include a batch code or best before date.

Therefore all batch codes and all best before dates are eligible to be returned as part of the recall.

A risk statement explains: “The product contains carrageenan which can present a choking hazard due to the consistency, solubility, shape and size and manner of consumption of the food.

“The product can be projected from the cup or capsule in one piece by exerting pressure at the tip and therefore can cause choking hazard.”

Yekta Foods has recalled the product, with point of sale notices now displayed in retail stores which sell Achachi Jelly Cups.

Customers are warned not to eat the sweets and to return them to the store whether they were purchased.
