168 Express Ltd recalls various Jelly products because of a choking hazard
168 Express Ltd is recalling multiple Jelly cup products because they contain Carrageenan, Sodium Alginate and Konjac gelling agents that are not permitted as an ingredient in jelly confectionery as they present a choking hazard. This product recall information notice has been amended to include an additional product.
|XZL Strong mixed jelly|
|XZL Jelly in school bag|
|XZL Yogurt Jelly|
The products contain Carrageenan, Sodium Alginate and Konjac gelling agents which can present a choking hazard due to the consistency, solubility, shape, 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, therefore can cause choking hazard.
About product recalls and withdrawals
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
