Nestlé has recalled all lot codes of 100g jars of Nescafé Collections Espresso instant coffees due to a packaging problem.

The Collections Espresso line of instant coffees is packaged in a plastic-encased glass jar. According to recall notices posted by Nestlé and echoed on some government web sites, the glass jar may become damaged during transportation, and release glass fragments into the coffee powder.

Nestlé's recall includes all 100g jars of the following Nescafé products:
  • Alta Rica (in France: Espresso Puissant et Corsé)
  • Alta Rica Decaff
  • Cap Colombie (in France: Espresso Doux et Fruité)
  • Suraya
  • Espresso

According to European Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) Notification #2010.0626, the recalled coffee was distributed in: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, the Russian Federation, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.

In addition, Canada and Singapore have posted recalled notices on their websites.

While the glass fragments may not be noticeable in the coffee powders, consuming the recalled coffee could result in injury. Please either discard the recalled Nescafé Collections instant coffees or return them to the store where they were purchased.
