People can claim a full refund for the yogurts by posting the outer cardboard sleeve or a pot lid showing the Use By Date to:

Food product recalls explained
According to the Food Standards Authority, if there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn'. This means that the product is taken off the shelves so that no more of it can be sold.
The FSA might also decide to “recall” the food, meaning that it is withdrawn from shelves, and customers are also asked to return the product to the shop where they bought it.
The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food.
In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific actions to be taken on behalf of consumers.
