A recall notice has been issued for a range of popular kids' yoghurts sold nationally in all major retailers. 

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), in conjunction with Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), Parmalat Australia Ltd is recalling three of its yoghurt pouch products, due to a packaging issue with their mushroom-style caps. The recall relates only to the packaging and not the yoghurt itself.
