NUA Naturals are recalling our Organic Apricot Kernels 175g due to an update in labelling recommendations as directed by the FSA. The reason is the usage of “No more than 3 to 5 per day” which is above the maximum level of 1 to 2 per day as recommended by the FSA in order to avoid any potential health risk.

Should you find that you have a batch number matching the above product please either return this to the shop you purchased it in for a full exchange or refund or, alternatively, contact NUA Naturals directly and we can arrange for the product to be picked up and a full refund or exchange given.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
