Four different flavoured yogurts are included in each pack, which are made with real chunks of fruit.

The four flavours are strawberry, peach, apricot and raspberry and cost £1 from supermarkets including Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.

The warning over the dairy snacks was issued after Nestle’s fruit supplier alerted manufacturers that the food may contain small pieces of black rubber.

This is following an “isolated incident” during the manufacturing process.

Your product recall rights

PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.

As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.

But it’s often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.

If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.

When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don’t there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.

If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.

They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.

In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full refund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.

You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.

Affected batches weigh 480g – made up of four 120g individual pots – and have a use by date of February 21 and 28, and March 6 and 13.

The dates can be found on the bottom right hand corner of the cardboard sleeve and on the top of each yogurt pot lid.

Shoppers who have the yogurts at home are advised to send the outer cardboard sleeve or a pot lid printed with any of these use by dates on them to the manufacturers in exchange for a full refund.

The address is: Ski Yogurt Recall, Freepost Consumer Services, Nestle UK ltd, York.

Shoppers can also contact the customer care team on 0800 00 30.

You do not need to include your shopping receipt to be eligible for your money back.

In a recall notice issued on the Food Standards Agency website, Nestle said: “The safety and quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for our company.

“We sincerely apologise to out consumers for the inconvenience caused by this voluntary recall.”
