A number of Müller products recalled in Ireland due to potential presence of metal pieces

The company said the recall is due to a fault in its factory.

A wide range of Müller products are being recalled as a precaution over fears they may contain metal pieces.

The German company has recalled nine batches of its products in Ireland.

"Müller is recalling some batches of its yogurt, dessert and rice products due to the possible presence of small pieces of metal," the Food Safety Authority of Ireland said in a statement.

"Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches."

The affected batches originated in the UK and include Müller Corner, Müller Light and Müller Rice products.

  • Müller Corner Fruit six-pack - strawberry, peach and apricot: Best before 26/02/2020 and 02/03/2020

Müller said in a product recall notice: “As a precautionary measure Müller is recalling some batches of Müller Fruit Corner and Müller Light, Müller Bliss Mascarpone and Müller Rice, due to the possible presence of small pieces of metal in the product.

"The decision follows the identification of a fault with a roller supporting belts used to transport fruit in its factory. The roller was misaligned potentially causing small pieces of metal to drop into the fruit.

“Müller has stressed that it has not detected any metal in samples from the affected batches. But the company has taken the precautionary measure of recalling certain products made during the period when this manufacturing fault developed.”
