Robinsons Fruit Shoots Have Been Recalled Due To Safety Concerns

Robinsons Fruit Shoots Have Been Recalled Due To Safety Concerns

A batch of Robinsons Fruit Shoots have had to be recalled over fears for customers' safety.

The fruit-flavoured juice drinks are being recalled after worries that the spout of the sports bottle cap could unexpectedly detach.

Included in the recall are the single bottle blackcurrant and apple Fruit Shoots bought in McDonald's between the dates June 22 and June 28, and the multi-packs of 24 Fruit Shoots sold in Tesco and Costco.

To check if your Fruit Shoots are affected, check if they have a batch number of NO5 L9164, NO5 L9171 or NO6 L9171, and a best before date of March 2020. If so, the FSA advises customers not to drink the Fruit Shoot and to apply for a refund instead.

The Food Standards Agency said that the makers of Fruit Shoots, Britvic PLC, were recalling the bottles as "the spout within the sports bottle cap may become detached unexpectedly, which may present a safety risk".

A statement from McDonald's read: "We would like to apologise for Fruit Shoot currently being out of stock. We were made aware of a packaging fault affecting the white drinking spout on a very small number of Fruit Shoot bottles and we therefore decided to remove it from our premises and are currently awaiting new stock.
