PRODUCT RECALL: ROBINSONS FRUIT SHOOT & ROBINSONS FRUIT SHOOT HYDRO

Britvic Soft Drinks has taken the decision to product recall all Fruit Shoot to include all Fruit Shoot variants and Fruit Shoot Hydro, featuring the new design ‘magicap’. This does NOT include Fruit Shoot My 5 which has the old cap still.

Britvic Soft Drinks has taken the decision to product recall all Fruit Shoot to include all Fruit Shoot variants and Fruit Shoot Hydro, featuring the new design ‘magicap’. This does NOT include Fruit Shoot My 5 which has the old cap still.

As part of our ongoing testing and analysis, we identified this morning that the issue of damaged caps, which has occurred on a small number of green caps (full sugar), has also occurred on blue caps used on low sugar variants and Hydro.

As the damaged caps may become fully or partially detached, we recognise that this is a packaging safety issue and believe that a full consumer recall of Fruit Shoot and Hydro is the appropriate course of action.

The packs that we are recalling are as follows:

All Fruit Shoot (regular and low sugar, single and multipacks)

All Fruit Shoot Hydro (single and multipacks)

We would ask you to remove all stock from shelf and quarantine all stock until further notice.

We will be running advertisements in national newspapers tomorrow.  We have asked consumers to return affected packs to the retailers, in line with standard procedures.

We apologise for the further inconvenience that this will cause and will continue to update you on the situation.

If you have any further questions please contact your beacon account manager.
