Heinz and Tesco are voluntarily recalling all 7+ months Heinz By Nature baby food range after the discovery that a single jar of baby food had been tampered with.

Two sharp metal fragments were found in the jar. Only the jars in the 7+month range and purchased from Tesco are affected.

The same product and same batch codes at other retail stores and in other packaging – for example, pouches – are not affected.

The products affected in this recall are:

  • Heinz Cheesy Tomato Pasta Stars
    Pack size: 200 g
    Batch codes: all batches

The possible presence of sharp metal fragments makes this product unsafe to eat and presents a safety risk.

If you have bought any of the above products do not feed it to your baby. Instead, return it to the Tesco store from where it was bought for a full refund.
