Customers who have recently shopped in major supermarkets including Asda and Tesco must check their cupboards after a urgent recall warning has been issued. The Food Standards Agency put out a health warning after bits of rubber were found in food and shoppers are being urged not to consume the affected product. The rubber has been found in a Cow & Gate product which could cause serious risk to the health of anyone who consumes this. Those who have the product are being told not to give it to children and to return it to the store bought immediately.
The affected product is the Cow & Gate Cheesy Broccoli Bake Stage 3 (10+ months).
This product is available to buy in most major supermarkets and all shoppers are being urged to check their cupboards if they think they might have it.
The packs which are affected are those in the size of the 250g jar with the batch code 28122020.
Only jars with the best before date of 28 December 2020 are at risk and they should be returned to the store bought.
They have been issued with the health warning after small pieces of blue rubber were found in some of the products.
The rubber traces make the Cow & Gate product unsafe to eat and point of sale notices are to be displayed in all retail stores selling the product.
On the notices, there will be more information for shoppers on what they should do if they have bought a jar from the affected batch.
It is advised the product can be returned to the store where it was bought for a full refund.
The refund will be given to customers with or without a receipt.
No other Cow & Gate products are known to be affected.
Recently, shoppers were urged to check their fridge when an urgent recall was issued amid salmonella fears.
Salmonella bacteria was found in Port Stephens Eggs with a best-before date up to and including June 8, 2019.
Shoppers were urged to check their cupboards for the product and not to eat the affected item.
Tesco issued an urgent recall after one product contained potentially fatal E.Coli.
