Tiger Brands is recalling KOO and Hugo's canned vegetable products that were produced between 1 May 2019 to 5 May 2021. 

This is due to an "extremely small number" of defective cans which were supplied by a packaging supplier.

The cans may have a defective side seam weld that could cause the can to leak, which can lead to "secondary microbial contamination".

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.

These products are being recalled:
