Four different yogurt products have been recalled nationally due to the potential presence of pieces of plastic.
The following products, with expiration dates ranging from July 16 to Aug. 25, have been recalled:
- Yoplait Minigo raspberry yogurt, sold in 4 x 90 gram packages
- Yoplait Minigo strawberry yogurt, sold in 4 x 90 gram packages
- Liberte Greek yogurt raspberry 2%, sold in 4 x 120 gram packages
- Liberte Greek yogurt coconut 2%, sold in 4 x 120 gram packages
Liberte Greek yogurt coconut 2%, sold in 4 x 120 gram packages, shown above, is among the recalled products.
In a statement online, General Mills Canada said it voluntarily recalled the products after becoming aware of the possibility of small pieces of plastic breaking off of the pouches’ spouts.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we are recalling all the products that could be impacted,” General Mills Canada stated.
Retailers have been notified of the issue and have been told to remove the products from shelves. Consumers are asked to either throw out or return the products where they were purchased
The issue only affects the products listed in the recall.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued the recall Sunday. The products have been distributed at retail locations across Canada.
This is the second recall for yogurt products due to the potential presence of plastic pieces in as many months — seven Iogo yogurt products were recalled in June.
That recall was for B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
