Baby food which is made by Cow & Gate has been urgently recalled from every supermarket in the UK.
Over major concerns that some may contain pieces of blue rubber
The company have said that small fragments if a thin blue rubber glove were found in some of the companies Cheesy Broccoli Bake stage 3 for babies aged 10 months or older.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned this would make the baby food “unsafe to eat”.
Cow & Gate says only 17 jars contained pieces of blue rubber out of a batch of 77,000.
It added that even the affected jars don’t pose a health risk – but it is recalling them anyway because they don’t meet its standards.
The 250g jars were on sale at almost every major supermarket, including Asda, Boots, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, and Tesco.
Only one batch of the baby food was affected.
Customers should check any jars they’ve bought by looking for the batch code: 28122020.
The affected jars will also have a best before date of December 28, 2020.
If you have bought one of the recalled jars, do not feed it to your baby.
Instead, you can return the jar to the store you bought it from with or without a receipt and receive a full refund. Cow & Gate has promised.
A product recall notice issued by Cow & Gate said: “We are sorry that these jars do not meet our usual high quality standards and for any inconvenience this recall may cause.
“These jars do not pose a health risk, but we are recalling them as they do not meet our usual high quality standards.”
