Vital Health Foods issues product recall on Mini Corn Cakes and Mini Rice Cakes

BRAND ACTIVITY

Issued by Magna Carta - Feb 8th, 11:01

Vital Health Foods has issued an immediate recall of its Mini Corn Cakes and Mini Rice Cakes as a precautionary measure following an investigation into two consumer complaints regarding metal fragments found within the products.

The fragments appear to have been caused by an equipment malfunction during the manufacturing process. The fragments may not be visible as they are baked inside the Mini Corn Cakes and Mini Rice Cakes.

“Between 01 July 2017 and 31 January 2018, we produced over 1.2 million units of the affected products. Only two incidents have been reported and our assessment indicates that the problem is isolated to less than 0.0002% of the stock produced.

However, we take customer safety very seriously and invite all consumers who purchased Vital Mini Corn Cakes or Mini Rice Cakes in any pack size or flavour with a Best Before (BB) date between 1 February 2018 (01/02/18) and 31 August 2018 (31/08/18) to either discard the product, or return it to the retailer from where it was bought for a full cash refund. No other products are affected in any way,”
says Justin Williamson, CEO of Vital Health Foods.

Its facilities conform to manufacturing best practice as prescribed by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), a global standard for food safety.
