The supermarket has issued a customer notice alert recalling Asda brand multi-pack juice drinks.

Drinks manufacturer Refresco Beverages UK Limited, who has some of their stock selling in Asda, said certain fruit juices are “unsafe”.

There is a “potential metal contamination in [the] straws”, which makes them unsafe, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) clarified.

Six fruit juices sold at Asda could be affected, which is why customers have been asked to return the products to the supermarket for a full refund.

Asda said they are conducting a “precautionary recall on six Asda brand multi-pack juice drinks due to potential metal contamination in the straws”.

Asda said: “If you have purchased any of the products and codes listed above, please bring them back to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund. You do not need your receipt.” The notice will be displayed in stores until January 16, 2024.

In addition to the fruit juices, Asda is also recalling numerous types of beans. Asda has asked customers to please return Asda baked beans and mixed bean salad due to the risk of rubber balls, around 2.5cm in diameter, being found in the tins.
