“Although we are confident in our rigorous quality systems and the risk of reaction is low, we recognise that to some of our little foodies, accidental consumption of oat gluten or banana could cause a reaction if the product is consumed,” the statement read.

“As such, as a precaution we have initiated a recall of the affected batch.”

Customers can return the product for a refund.
