The product in question is a Slenderplan Tropical Smoothie Meal Replacement Shake.
Understandably, it was labeled “unsafe for drinking” due to the bug that has led to the possibility that there were small pieces of metal in the product.
The affected product has a best before date of May 31, 2023 and is available in a pack size of eight 26g sachets.

What is a product recall?
Sometimes there is a problem with a food product that is, it should not be sold.
Then it could be “withdrawn” (taken from the shelves) or “remembered’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
Sometimes foods need to be withdrawn or recalled when there is a risk to consumers because allergy labeling is missing or incorrect, or when there is another food allergy risk.
If there is a food allergy risk, the FSA issues an allergy alarm.
