A popular children’s snack found in major supermarkets across the UK has been recalled over fears it could contain small pieces of metal.

Yoplait UK is recalling Yoplait Frubes Strawberry, Red Berry and Peach Variety Pack after small metal pieces were found in the peach flavour within the multipack.

The discovery makes the product unsafe to eat sparking a product recall shared via the Food Standards Agency.

Only products with a ‘C’ after the ‘use-by’ date are affected, displayed as ‘09 Feb C’ on the packaging.

Frubes are sold in in major UK supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda.
