Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Confectionery can be found on the Web site above.

According to the FSA, the recalled XZL Strong Mixed Jelly, XZL Jelly in School Bag and XZL Yogurt Jelly Confections contain Carrageenan, Sodium Alginate and Konjac gelling agents that can present a choking hazard due to the consistency, solubility, shape, size and manner of consumption of the food. The product can be projected from the cup or capsule in one piece by exerting pressure at the tip and therefore can cause choking hazard. As a direct result of this reported defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled XZL Jelly Sweets identified above.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled XZL Strong Mixed Jelly, XZL Jelly in School Bag and XZL Yogurt Jelly Confectionery, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Candy to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-9-9, your closest hospital A&E or emergency centre equipped to properly treat choking, asphyxiation, oral injury, suffocation, internal ingestion and/or GI tract obstruction.
