It is one of several reported case of contamination of Talley's products.
Humphrey Elton, a father of preschoolers, said he complained to Talley's six months ago after finding the berries in a bag of peas.
The company had simply sent him a $5 cheque to replace the peas and a letter saying the berries were not toxic, Mr Elton said.
NZFSA director of compliance and investigation, Geoff Allen, said today almost 50 percent contamination was unacceptable.
