Food recalls are issued when there is a discovery about a product that may be deemed unsafe to the consumer. The latest recall was issued by supermarket giant Tesco recalling popular baby food items.
As a precautionary measure, Cow & Gate and Aptamil are recalling certain date codes of two baby cereals.
The company is asking customers not to feed the following to their children.
Cow & Gate is recalling its My First Muesli 10+ months, 330g, and Aptamil is recalling its Oats, Raisin & Apple Bircher Muesli 10+ months, 275g.
This is due to finding pieces of apple stalk in some of the products.
The presence of apple stalk means it is unsafe for babies and could produce a possible health risk.
Tesco said: “Please do not feed the affected product to your baby.
“Instead, return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.”
If customers would like further information, they can contact Aptamil on 0800 996 1000 or at aptaclub.co.uk/contact-aptaclub.

Product batches affected:
- Cow & Gate My First Muesli 10+ months, 330g.
Best before dates: December 20, 2021 and January 4, 2022.
- Aptamil Oats, Raisin & Apple Bircher Muesli 10+ month, 275g.

This isn’t the only recent recall from Tesco, the supermarket is also recalling a popular dip after egg was discovered in one batch that wasn’t declared on the label.
Tesco said: “We’ve been made aware that Tesco Tzatziki 200g, with a use by date of April 12, 2021, has been mis-packed with Tesco Sour Cream and Chive Dip 200g that contains egg which isn’t declared on the packaging.”
This could pose a potential health risk to anyone who has an intolerance or allergy to egg.
The supermarket added: “If you have an allergy to egg, please do not eat the affected product. Instead, return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given.”
Customers don’t need a recipe to get their full refund.
Tesco is also recalling one flavour of JimJams spread after it was found to contain milk which wasn’t declared on the label.
The retailer explained: “We’ve been made aware that the markers of JimJams are recalling certain batches of their JimJam No Added Sugar Dark Chocolate Orange Spread (Vegan) 330g.
“This is because they’ve been found to contain milk which isn’t declared on the packaging.”
The best before dates affected are all dates up to and including April 2022.
If customers have purchased the chocolate spread, it should be returned to a local store where a full refund will be given and no receipt is required to do so.
