Popular children’s drink Robinson’s Fruit Shoot is being pulled from shelves by its maker, Britvic, over a “packaging safety issue” surrounding a new cap design.
The “precautionary measure” is being taken for all varieties of the drink, including Fruit Shoot Hydro, with recent purchasers being urged to take the product back to stores for a full refund.
The new cap was described as a “spill proof magic cap” and an “easy to open sports cap” in promotional literature.
In its recall notice Britvic said: “Britvic Soft Drinks is recalling all Robinsons Fruit Shoot and Fruit Shoot Hydro packs, featuring the new design cap, due to a packaging safety issue.''
''Fruit Shoot My-5 is NOT being recalled. No other Robinsons products are affected.
''Britvic Soft Drinks apologises for any inconvenience caused.''
