According to the FSAI: “The above jelly mini cup sweets are subject to recall, as they may cause a choking risk, due to the presence of certain gel-forming food additive ingredients.  Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in shops supplied with the implicated sweets.”

Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers and retailers are asked to remove the implicated sweets from sale. They are also asked to display a point-of-sale recall notice in shops where they were sold. 

Wholesalers and distributors are requested to contact their affected customers and recall the implicated sweets and provide a point-of-sale recall notice to their retailer customers. 

Consumers are advised not to eat the implicated sweets.
