The UK's Food Standards Agency has renewed its warning that children should not eat mini fruit jelly sweets containing konjac after two of these banned products were found on sale in the UK.

Jelly sweets containing konjac were banned across Europe last year following the deaths from choking of around 18 children worldwide. Jelly sweets made with konjac do not dissolve easily and this can result in the sweet becoming stuck in a child's throat.

The FSA said that during a recent routine check, trading standards officers found that a cash-and-carry store in Watford was selling ABC Mini Fruit Bites and Cocode Nut Jellies, both of which contain konjac.

"The importer has now ceased trading and is no longer distributing these products from its premises in Manchester. It is not known how widely these products may have been distributed," the FSA said.
