The company is recalling the affected products from consumers, all of which were launched on 4 November and recalled on 8 November. Product recall notices have been displayed in the Tesco stores where they were sold, and the barcode of the affected products blocked. Customers will also be contacted via Plum website, emails, Twitter and Facebook, explaining the reason for the recall. If you have bought any of the products listed above, please do not use it, but return it to the store at which you bought it, or contact Plum Baby Foods customer helpline on 0800 988 7023 (free to call on a UK landline).
No other Plum Baby Food products are known to be affected.
About product recalls and withdrawals
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
You can get FSA alerts about product recalls and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the 'Email updates' link at the bottom of this page to find out how.
