Product recall: Danone yoghurts may contain pieces of metal

Danone has issued a recall after pieces of metal were found in three lines of its yoghurt products.

Danone is recalling some of its yoghurts as some of them may contain pieces of metal and may present a risk for consumers.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) says: 'The possible presence of metal makes these products unsafe to eat.'

According to Danone, the problem arose as a result of an issue at one of its third party suppliers.

Read on to find out which yoghurts are being recalled and what you should do if you've bought one of the affected products.
