Cow & Gate has urgently recalled a batch of its baby food from a number of supermarkets.

The baby food company said a batch of its Cheesy Broccoli Bake may contain small pieces of blue rubber.

Customers are urged to check the product number and expiry date if they have bought the 250g jar of Cow & Gate Cheesy Broccoli Bake Stage 3 (10+ months). 

The batch of baby food affected has code 28122020 and a best before date of 28/12/2020.

The jars were on sale at almost every major supermarket, including Asda, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Tesco, as well as Boots.

A recall notice by the Food Standards Agency (FCA) said: "If you have bought the product, do not feed it to your baby. Instead, return it to the store where it was bought, with or without a receipt, for a full refund."

Cow & Gate said the product "does not pose a health risk", but "does not meet our usual high quality standards".

The company added: "We are taking this action because some jars in this batch have been found to contain small pieces of thin blue rubber glove.

"The product does not pose a health risk, but we are recalling it as it does not meet our usual high quality standards. We are therefore asking parents not to feed Cheesy Broccoli Bake with this best before date to their babies.

"We are sorry that this happened and would like to reassure parents that this is an isolated incident."

Those who need more information can call Cow & Gate's careline 24/7 on 0800 977 4000 or speak via live chat.
