Recall of Liga Original Due to Possible Choking Risk

The FSAI has issued a food alert to confirm that as a precautionary measure, the distributor, Jacob Fruitfield Food Group, is recalling all Liga Original from the Irish market because the biscuits have been found to take too long to soften in the mouth. This could possibly cause choking or discomfort in babies under 9 months of age if they are fed the biscuits dry. There is no safety concern if the biscuits are first mixed with liquid, such as milk or fruit juice. The manufacturer, Kraft, has advised that the product is safe to feed to babies aged over 9 months either as a dry biscuit or mixed with a liquid.

This recall is part of a European initiative by Kraft, who will change the feeding instructions on the pack in relation to feeding babies under 9 months. There are no risks for babies who have already consumed the product. No other Liga products are affected.
