About product recalls and withdrawals

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers. Ref: FSA-PRIN-27-2018

Obligation to our Customers

We have been in close contact with the FSA and Fabricake regarding this matter and have been advised to take the following action:

  • Remove the effected products from sale. As outlined above, only 2 products from the Rolkem range have been recalled.
  • Offer any of our customers that have bought one of these 2 products, a return option for which we will offer a full refund for the product cost at the time of purchase. We would need to be able to find proof of purchase on our system, so will require certain personal details in order to find this
  • Advise that for further information on this issue, customers should visit the FSA Rolkem Product Recall Information Page or contact Fabricake directly

We have been assured that there is nothing further that we can do to resolve this issue or are in any way responsible for the outcomes. We will of course be more than happy to assist our customers directly and advise accordingly. We thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
