A Nestlé food product sold in Asda, Morrisons and Iceland has been recalled. The voluntary recall has been made due to an “unpleasant taste”.

The food recall was made by Nestlé with Asda, Morrisons and Iceland sharing the warning.


The Milkybar yogurt packs have been voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer.

Lactalis Nestlé Chilled Dairy UK stated the “salty” taste was a result of too much of one ingredient in the affected batches.

The packs are 330 grams, 6x55g, with the best before dates of February 13, 2021 and February 14, 2021.

No other products or best before dates are known to be affected by the error.

A statement said: “As a precautionary measure, Lactalis Nestlé Chilled Dairy UK is voluntarily recalling the above product with the specific use by date 13/02 and 14/02 due to a strong unpleasant salty taste caused by an ingredient which is part of the normal composition but that has been overdosed in the production of these batches.

“There is no food safety or health risk but impact on taste can be unpleasant to consumers.

“The Use By date can be found printed on the top of the pot lid.”

Those who have bought the affected packs have been urged not to consume them and the contents should be disposed of.

Instead, the top of the pot lid with the date displayed can be returned to Nestlé for a full refund.

The statement continued: “Return the top of the pot lid with this Use By date for a full refund to: Freepost Nestle UK Consumer Services, Nestle Milkybar Little Treats Recall, PO BOX 205, YORK, YO91 1XY.

“If you have any questions, please contact the Nestlé Customer Careline on Freephone on 0800 00 00 30 in the UK between 9am and 5pm on Monday to Friday.

“The Safety and Quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for the company.”

The affected batches were known to be sold in Asda, Morrisons and Iceland stores.

Iceland has also issued a recall for sweets as they contain milk not mentioned on the label.

Stockley’s Fruit Sherbets

The supermarket chain issued a warning for Stockley’s Fruit Sherbets.

The affected packs have the best before dates of February 2022 and March 2022 and they may be unsafe for anyone with an intolerance to milk.

The Iceland website states: “We are recalling the product as it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk products.

“All consumers who have bought this product with the date code/s listed, should not consume them. Please return to any Iceland store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.”
