Argh it's doing my head in now.

We noticed a few weeks ago that there are no fruit shoots in the shops. Now Daniel is rigid about his food and drink and is only able to use sippy cups and fruit shoot style bottles to drink from (this is to do with autism, not laziness or naughtiness, btw for the newer ladies).

Last week we discovered from a notice in the co-op that all the fruit shoots with the new style bottles had been recalled because of a safety issue.

How long is it gonna take to fix? Can they not send them out in old style bottles???

We really rely on fruit shoots for picnics and such in the holidays and we're down to our last few!

Anyone else having the same problem or noticed any shops where they're still selling them at all?

We have a bottle of Robinson's orange to refill bottles with but this may meet with resistance as Daniel can usually tell the difference...

I don;t often get fruit shoots, ~I tend to buy the shops own version of them so not really been affected. Although I did see Fruit Shoots in Sainsburys today.

I don't buy Fruit Shoots unless they are on offer and I know we are going to be busy with outings where we will need a picnic. I had no idea they had been recalled, what a nuisance for you and Daniel!

I only bought some here a few days ago but in the normal style bottles. Hope they are back on the shelf for u soon, i know how important it is to keep things the same.

I might pop to Sainsbury's tomorrow to see if our local one has some as Yvonne's did.

Sharron i just did my online shopping with Tesco and they had Fruit Shoots, i would say give your local Tesco a go too. They should have them as they are pretty in sync with what is sold over here.
