Fancy yourself a rice cake?
Well, you might want to reconsider chowing down on the puffed snack for lunch, as it may have a fragment of metal in it.
Vital Health Foods, the largest vitamin and nutritional supplement company in Africa, has issued an immediate recall of its Mini Corn Cakes and Mini Rice Cakes “after metal fragments were found within products purchased by two customers,” reports Times LIVE:
“The fragments appear to have been caused by an equipment malfunction during the manufacturing process‚” the company said on Thursday.
“Between 01 July 2017 and 31 January 2018‚ we produced over 1.2 million units of the affected products. Only two incidents have been reported and our assessment indicates that the problem is isolated to less than 0.0002% of the stock produced.
“However‚ we take customer safety very seriously and invite all consumers who purchased (these items) to either discard the product‚ or return it to the retailer from where it was bought for a full cash refund. No other products are affected in any way‚” says Justin Williamson‚ CEO of Vital Health Foods.
Details of the affected products are:
Vital Mini Corn Cakes or Mini Rice Cakes in any pack size or flavour with a Best Before (BB) date between 1 February 2018 (01/02/18) and 31 August 2018 (31/08/18).
Oh, and in case you’re busy scrutinising the rice cake you were just about to munch down on, fragments may not be visible as they are baked inside the products.
And you thought diarrhoea was your biggest worry.
