Confectionery giant Nestlé Australia issued a recall of Uncle Tobys Roll-Ups on Friday due to the possible presence of small metal fragments. The company recalled products sold at Coles, Woolworths, IGA’s, independent retailers and online retailers nationally.
The recalled goods include the Passionfruit, Rainbow Berry, Rainbow Fruit Salad and Funprints Strawberry flavours which have been on sale in stores since early December.
The contamination was caused by equipment failure at the facility of an ingredient supplier but does not affect any other Nestlé products or batches, Nestlé general manager snacks, Susan Catania, confirmed.
“If you have purchased any of these products, please do not consume it, but return it to the place of purchase for a full refund,” Catania said. “As soon as we were made aware of the issue we made contact with authorities to conduct a recall and notified all relevant retailers.”
NSW Food Authority advised consumers not to eat the product and to return it to the place of purchase for a full cash refund. Any consumers with health concerns should seek medical advice.
