Please consult the photograph above for details of the Yogurt Squishy products’ packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, this recall was initiated after it was suspected that the Yogurt’s packaging may have a fault that results in the white sealing cap failing when package is resealed. If this defect occurs, it poses choking, ingestion and GI tract laceration hazards.

In general, if plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Yogurt, please do not consume them directly, feed them to your child nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
