Bluebird is advising customers to check the batch information located on the product packaging and to not eat any that match those on the recall list.

It is also advising any customers with any concerns to contact their doctor or seek medical advice.

Customers can return the product to their retailer for a full refund or phone Bluebird on 0800 762 324.
