Achachi Jelly Cups

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.

Product details:

Pack size: 240 x 12g (Box) and 12g Single Jelly Cup

Batch code: all

Best before date: All date codes

The FSA said: "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."

Costa Coffee Jammy Rudolph Shortcake

Costa Coffee has also recently recalled Jammy Rudolph Shortcake because it contains egg which is not mentioned on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg.
