Heinz and Tesco recall 7+ months Heinz By Nature baby food jars because a product purchased from Tesco has been tampered with

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 e.g. pouches are not 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If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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 FSA 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.
