Confectionary firm Athole Tablets has swiftly recalled two of their tablet products over fears that they could contain small pieces of metal.
Customers who had purchased batches of Athole Tablet’s Scots Tablets or Iron Bros Tablet have been warned that they shouldn’t eat the products in question and that they can be returned for a refund.
The watchdog who issued the recall notice, Food Standards Scotland (FSS), stated that Athole Tablets have already taken rapid steps in order to withdraw the confectionary from sale as a result of the ‘production issue.’
It seems that no other products from Athole Tablet Ltd have been impacted, and the items which are being recalled carry best before dates for February 2018 and come in 2.2kg jars.
The recall information notice which was issued by the FSS states that the product ‘may contain small pieces of metal which could present a safety risk’.
The Scots Tablet batch numbers affected are 171920P1-4, 172221P1-8, 172321P1-5, 172421P1-4 and 172521P1-4, while the Iron Broo Tablet batch numbers which may be impacted are 172321P6-8 and 172621P1-4.
All of the other batch numbers are fine, as are the other flavours of tablet or jars of fudge, as these are not being recalled.
