Robinson’s Fruit Shoots recalled over fears children could choke on the lid

Some Robinson’s Fruit Shoot sold in Costco, Tesco and McDonald’s are being recalled.

This is due to concerns that the bottles may be a risk to children as it is thought they could choke on the lid.

The spout in the bottle cap on the apple and blackcurrant flavour bottles could detach and thus pose a safety risk.

The Food Standards Agency issued a statement on the bottles following a small number of reports.

Robinson’s Fruit Shoots sold in multi-packs of 24 at Costco and Tesco, and as single bottles at McDonald’s between 22 June and 28 are the ones being recalled.

The product recall only applies to the bottles with batch code numbers of N06 L9171, N05 L9164 and N05 L9171.

Customers can apply for a full refund via Robinson's customer services on 0114 223 44 88 or via its website.

Britvic, the owner of Robinson's, said no other fruit shoot products are affected, and Paul Graham, Managing Director of Britvic in the UK, said: "We always put the health and safety of consumers first.

"Accordingly, as soon as we were made aware of a packaging issue, we took steps immediately to minimise any potential risk to consumers.

"We identified the specific multipacks affected and, through our initial work, we were able to reduce the number of retailers impacted to three.

"We are working with them to withdraw the packs and inform consumers, and we will continue to do so."
