Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Jelly Cup confectionery products are subject to this recall:

  • Konjac Coconut Jelly Assorted, sold in 420 gram packages
  • Plain Jelly Mini Jelly Cups, sold in 300 gram packages

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, Jelly Cups and similar products containing Konjac are permanently banned in Australia due to choking risk. Konjac does not dissolve easily when eaten: if a jelly lodges in a person’s throat, it can act as a “plug” that can restrict or completely cut off air supply.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Konjac Coconut Jelly Assorted products and Plain Jelly Mini Jelly Cup products please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation.
