Weetabix Food Company is recalling cereal packs because the product may contain pieces of blue soft rubber.

Oatibix Flakes batches subject to the recall notice are all 550g size packs, with:

‘Best before’ date: 18 January 2017 with batch code: 6018

‘Best before’ date: 19 January 2017 with batch code: 6019

‘Best before’ date: 20 January 2017 with batch code: 6020

‘Best before’ date: 21 January 2017 with batch code: 6021

No other Oatibix batches or products are known to be affected. The company is advising consumers who have already bought a pack from these batch numbers to dispose of the product.

For a full refund, customers should send a photograph of the product ‘Best Before’ date to consumerservice@weetabix.com, or send the strip from the top of the packet to: Freepost RTJX-CZGH-ZLYK Oatibix Consumer Services PO Box 5, Burton Latimer, Kettering, Northamptonshire NN15 5JR

A company statement read: “Fulfilling the expectations of our consumers is of paramount importance to us here at Weetabix, and we take all issues regarding the quality of our food extremely seriously. We offer our sincere apologies to you for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your cooperation.”
