The FSAI has issued an urgent recall on Fulfil protein bars for a third retailer due to concern that they may contain small pieces of clear plastic.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) released a statement yesterday informing of additional retailer WH Smith selling implicated bars of Fulfil White Chocolate & Cookie Dough Vitamin & Protein Bars.

“The above batch of Fulfil White Chocolate & Cookie Dough Vitamin & Protein Bars is being recalled by WH Smith due to the possible presence of small pieces of clear plastic. WH Smith is recalling the implicated bars and displaying a point-of-sale recall notice,” the FSAI statement said.

The affected bars on sale at WH Smith have a batch code of L7318/J and a best before date of February 15, 2019.

The warning comes after earlier alerts last week recalling batches of Fulfil White Chocolate Vitamin & Protein Bars in two other retailers.

Single bars sold in Holland & Barrett stores with the batch code L7318/J and a best before date of February 15, 2019 were also recalled.

Customers who purchased bars in sets of three in Dunnes Stores with a batch code of L8002/J and best before date of April 5, 2019 are also being urged to return the product.
