Fonterra Recalls Butter Products

16 February 2012

NEW ZEALAND - Fonterra Brands NZ is recalling two butter products, following two isolated complaints received from consumers who had found a fine metal object in their butter products. There have been no reports of anyone being injured.

Fonterra Brands (New Zealand) Ltd (FBNZ) is conducting a voluntary recall of the following products:

  • Mainland Salted Butter 500gm Best before date of 10 January 2013 (Batch CV12) - Anchor Salted
  • Butter 500gm - Best before date 26 January 2013 (Batch CV28)

Peter McClure, FBNZ Managing Director, said: "The voluntary recall is a precautionary measure as there can be no compromise when it comes to product quality or the health and safety of our consumers.

"We advise anyone with family or friends who may have bought this product to contact them in case they do not see or hear this announcement," Mr McClure said.

Consumers should not consume the above-stated products but should return them to the point of purchase (with the appropriate packaging (batch code included)) for a full refund.

This recall is limited to the above-stated products that are produced and sold in New Zealand and no other FBNZ products are affected.

Food recall notices have been placed in daily newspapers across New Zealand this week and authorities have been notified.
