Yekta Foods is recalling Achachi Jelly Cups because the products contain carrageenan which is not permitted as an ingredient in jelly confectionery products as it presents a choking hazard. Consumers may have purchased the jelly cups individually which will not include a batch code or best before date.
|Pack size||240 x 12g (Box) and 12g Single Jelly Cup|
|Best before||’: All date codes|
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.

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If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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.
