20 May 2010, Johannesburg: Nestlé South Africa announced the voluntary recall of its ALTA RICA, CAP COLOMBIE and ESPRESSO soluble coffee range – specialty varieties of Nescafé - contained in a specific type of 100g glass jar with a distinctive plastic sleeve. It was discovered that some of these jars may be susceptible to breakage during the delivery process to customers and may contain small pieces of glass.

The quality and safety of our products is a non-negotiable priority for our company. Consequently, as a precautionary measure, we have decided to voluntarily recall this specialty range. We will be changing the packaging format before we reintroduce this coffee range to the market.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and we would like to reassure our consumers that none of our other coffee products are affected.
