Nestle recalls some Nutrition Build-up Original
Friday 9 May 2008
Nestle has recalled, as a precautionary measure, one batch of its own-brand Nutrition Build-up Original (400g) because it may contain small pieces of thin plastic. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.
The product is a milk-based powder that provides calories, protein, vitamins and minerals and can be added to a wide range of hot and cold foods and used by patients at risk of malnutrition.
Nestlé has recalled the affected batch. A product recall notice will appear in the national press today, Monday 12 May 2008. All customers are being contacted and letters will be issued to hospital customers. These notices will advise customers of the reason for the recall. Anyone who has bought the affected product can return the product lid for a full refund.
The product being recalled is:
- Nestlé Nutrition Build-up Original, 400g
- Best before end: October 2009
- Batch code: 72760949
No other Nestlé products are known to be affected.
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Food alerts are the FSA's way of letting local authorities and consumers know about problems associated with food and, in some cases, providing details of specific action to be taken. They are issued under two categories:
- Food Alerts: for Action
- Food Alerts: for Information
You can get FSA alerts either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link below to find out how.
