3 more popular children yoghurt brands have been RECALLED from the shelves

On Friday, we reported that Product Safety Australia had issued a national recall on Parmalat Australia’s Tamar Valley Dairy Kids All Natural Greek Yoghurts. Specifically the tropical, vanilla and strawberry flavours in the 100g metallic pouch.

Since then, the NSW Food Authority have recalled three other yoghurt brands aimed at children: CalciYum 70g pouches, Woolworths 70g pouches and Aldi’s Brooklea Supersize Yogurt Squishy 150g pouches.

The yoghurts have been recalled due to fear the packaging – namely the caps – could become dislodged and present a potential choking hazard, especially for young children.

It is important to note however, the recall occurred as a result of the packaging of these products not the yoghurt itself.

“This recall is related to the packaging only, not the yoghurt itself. Some caps, when used to reseal the pouch after opening, are failing,” read a statement from CalciYum.

“We are working on replacing the faulty caps with an alternative design.”

The yoghurts being recalled are:
