The maker of a yogurt brand is recalling its variety packs after pieces of metal were found inside some.
Frubes are small fruit-flavored yoghurt tubes aimed at children and manufactured by Yoplait.
They were the first dessert brand to specifically target children and children under the age of three are the largest consumers of yoghurt in the UK.
This comes as supermarkets including Tesco, Aldi, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s announced it earlier this week noting several pastry and dough products after salmonella was detected.
Now, because of the issue, Yoplait is recalling its Frubes variety pack of strawberries, red berries and peaches.
A statement from Yoplait said: “While only a small number of products are expected to be affected, Yoplait is recalling the entire range of this product with the stated expiration date, with customer safety being our top priority.”
The Frubes variety packs contain nine tubes, each with 37 g of yoghurt.
Concerned parents will know if they have a packet of contaminated Frubes as it will have an expiration date of February 9th, 2022.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) regulator said today: “Small pieces of metal were found in the peach flavor in the multi-pack, making this product unsafe for consumption.”
All stores selling the problematic Frubes will put up signs to inform customers of the recall.
The FSA said customers who bought the contaminated Frubes should return them to the store where they were bought for a full refund.
You don’t need a receipt to get the refund.
A Yoplait spokesperson said: “At Yoplait, consumers always come first and as a precaution we are recalling a small number of Frubes Strawberry, Red Berry & Peach Variety Packs 9x37g due to the potential for small metal parts to be peach flavored.
“If you have this product with a use by date of 2/9/2022 and purchased it from Co-op or a local supermarket, please return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. No other Yoplait or Frubes products are affected by this recall.”

The warning was issued for ready-to-roll Bake Away raw pastries and pasta.
A total of 16 products were recalled, including supermarket own-brand items, as well as Pizza Express dough and Galberts pastries.
Morrisons has recently withdrawn certain packs of its own-brand milk chocolate Amour ice cream amid fears some may contain pieces of plastic.
The ice creams will come in packs of three, with those that have a February 2023 date code affected.
Supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose have also recalled St Helen’s Farm Goats Butter because it may contain small pieces of metal.
The recall affects the 250g size and all packs with an expiration date up to and including March 13, 2022.
Back in 2020, The Mirror reported that a woman was “dumbfounded” after claiming she had found one two inches of nail in her morning yogurt.
Clare Hough was enjoying a Toffee Hoops Muller Corner for breakfast as she says she spotted the item.
Mueller said its products are subject to “extensive controls” and that the production process takes place on a closed bottling line before being scanned by an X-ray machine.
