Parents are being warned to double check what yoghurt they’re popping into their kids lunch boxes this morning following a nationwide recall.
All 110g Tamar Valley Dairy Kids Yoghurt Pouches have been pulled from sale over fears the green-coloured caps may pose a serious choking hazard to children.
“Parmalat Australia has today announced that it is recalling all 110g Tamar Valley Dairy Kids Yoghurt pouches from all major retailers across Australia,” a statement on the Food Standards Australia and New Zealand website reads.

“It has come to our attention that upon resealing, some of the green caps are failing, resulting in a possible choking hazard.
“The centre top of the green cap may become dislodged upon re-application of the cap after initial use, and pose a choking hazard.”
Affected yoghurts include:
Strawberry flavour – Use by 20th August 2017 through to 1st October 2017 inclusive
Vanilla flavour – Use by 20th August 2017 through to 25th September 2017 inclusive
Tropical flavour – Use by 20th August 2017 through to 25th September 2017 inclusive
People who have purchased the recalled yoghurts are being urged to return them to their place of purchase for a full cash refund.
“Parmalat is greatly concerned to any risk to its consumers. This recall is being undertaken to ensure the safety of our consumers as an ongoing commitment to maintain the highest possible standards of safety and product quality at all times.”
