In the product recall notice, Muller said: “As a precautionary measure Muller is recalling some batches of Muller Fruit Corner and Mullerlight, Muller Bliss Mascarpone and Muller Rice, due to the possible presence of small pieces of metal in the product.
“The decision follows the identification of a fault with a roller supporting belts used to transport fruit in its factory. The roller was misaligned potentially causing small pieces of metal to drop into the fruit.
“Muller has stressed that it has not detected any metal in samples from the affected batches. But the company has taken the precautionary measure of recalling certain products made during the period when this manufacturing fault developed.”
