Tesco is recalling jars of Heinz baby food over fears they could contain sharp metal fragments.

The recall extends to all 7+ months Heinz By Nature baby food range that are sold in the supermarket.

Precautionary measure

Most Popular

    Heinz and Tesco are voluntarily recalling the 7+ month baby food range after it was discovered a single jar had been “tampered with”. The jar was found to contain two sharp metal fragments.

    As a precaution, Tesco has recalled all eight flavours of baby food from its shelves and has assured customers that only jars in the 7+ month range are affected.

    The same product and same batch codes at other retail stores and in other packaging, such as pouches, are not affected.
