Millions of canned products recalled by Tiger Brands


Tiger Brands has issued a recall for several of their canned vegetable products from the KOO and Hugo's brands.

According to a statement, some products produced between 1 May 2019 and 5 May 2021 may be in defective cans which were supplied by a packaging supplier.

Consumers are urged to check their pantries for goods on their shelves that can be returned to the supermarket where it was purchased for a full refund.

The recall includes favourite brands like Koo Baked Beans, Fresh Garden Peas, Spaghetti in tomato sauce, and mixed vegetables.

The affected products will have a barcode that is available on Koo's website.

Tiger Brands says no health issues have been reported to date, but there is a "low probability of illness and injury" if the contaminated products are consumed.

It is an extremely small number of defective cans that may have a defective side seam weld that could cause a leak which can lead to "secondary microbial contamination".
