Tiger Brands Recalls 20 Million Koo & Hugo’s Canned Products Due to Defect

Jul 26, 2021

Faizel Patel – 26/07/2021

Tiger Brands has announced that is recalling certain KOO, Hugo’s and Helderberg canned vegetable products produced between 1 May 2019 to 5 May 2021 due to what it called an “extremely small number of defective cans supplied by a packaging supplier”.

The company says the cans which may have a defective side seam weld that could cause the can to leak was initially discovered in May this year with 18 cans at one of Tiger Brand’s facilities.

Tiger Brands identified the issue as part of its internal quality assurance processes.

“A leak in a can presents a risk of secondary microbial contamination after the canned products are dispatched into the marketplace. Where such contamination occurs, it will present a low probability of illness and injury if the contaminated product is consumed.”

The recall by Tiger Brands affects an estimate of about 20 million cans and includes popular products such as baked beans, spaghetti and sweetcorn.
