Tiger Brands has announced that it has recalled millions of defected cans produced under their Koo and Hugo's labels.

According to a statement released by the food manufacturer, they believe that "an extremely small number of defective cans" have managed to find their way into one of the main manufacturing batches.

The cans in question have a defect where it might cause the can to leak. This could create possible health concerns for anyone who consumed the goods contained within the cans.

The criteria for returning cans are as follows:

·        Check your can to see if it was manufactured between 1 May 2019 and 5 May 2021.

·        Return the cans to the store of purchase for a full refund.

Here's a list of the affected products:

Tiger Brands released a statement on KOO's website about the side effects of consuming a defected product.

"No health issues have been reported to date relating to the affected product range. Although there is a low probability of illness and injury, matters of quality and food safety are an absolute priority for Tiger brands. The company, in consultation with the NCC, therefore made the decision to initiate a precautionary withdrawal in the best interest of the consumer."
