Oatly is recalling a batch of one of its most popular products, after it was found the milk substitute may contain metal pieces.
The affected drinks are only sold at Tesco, but the possible presence of metal make the product “unsafe to drink and presents a safety risk” according to the Food Standards Agency.
The recall affects Oatly Oat Drink Whole with a pack size of one litre, and a best before date of 29 April 2019.
The FSA’s advice to anyone who finds they have the affected product in their possession, is to “return it to the store” and “do not drink it”. You will be able to claim a refund.
Oatly produce dairy alternative milks, particularly popular with vegan customers.
They describe their Oat Drink Whole product as “the obvious choice when you want to swap whole cow’s milk for something good for the planet”.
Why is there metal in my oat milk?
Oatly said in a statement, “As a precaution we’re doing a recall of an isolated batch of Oatly chilled Oat Drink whole that might contain metal pieces from a broken machine part.”
“The risk is very small but we always put safety first and want to make sure we eliminate any risk.”
“No further stock was impacted on the affected production line, or any of our other products.”
