Uncle Tobys Roll-Ups Recalled Over Metal Fragment Fears
A number Uncle Tobys Roll-Ups products have been recalled from major supermarkets over fears the popular treat could be contaminated with metal fragments.
Nestlé Australia issued the recall on Friday evening to four of its Roll-Ups products with use-by dates between June and July of this year.
The recall applies to a number of batches from its Passionfruit, Rainbow Berry, Rainbow Fruit Salad and Funprints Strawberry roll-ups that have been available in-store since December 2019.
The affected roll-ups are sold at major supermarkets including Coles, Woolworths, and IGA as well as independent and online retailers.
According to Nestlé, some products were being recalled because they may contain small metal fragments that could cause illness or injury if consumed.
Nestlé said they issued a recall because one of its ingredient suppliers had advised the company that an equipment failure at their facility had led to the possible presence of metal fragments in an ingredient used to manufacture roll-ups.
General Manager Snacks, Susan Catania said other batches and products have not been affected and that so far the company had not received any complaints from consumers regarding metal in Uncle Tobys roll-ups.
“As soon as we were made aware of the issue we made contact with authorities to conduct a recall and notified all relevant retailers,” Catania said.
Food Standards Australia said consumers should not eat the affected products.
"Consumers should return the product to the place of purchase for a full cash refund," FSANZ said in a statement.
"Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice."
