Choking Fears as Cow & Gate and Aptamil Baby Muesli Recalledby Laura Driver
Three popular baby muesli products by Cow & Gate and Aptamil are being recalled over fears that toddlers can choke on the ingredients.
The items are sold in a majority of the UK's major supermarkets, including Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Tesco.
The muesli range is being recalled "as a precaution" as some items have been found to contain pieces of apple stalk, which presents a choking hazard for babies.
The product recall affects the Cow & Gate my first muesli baby cereal 10+ months in the pack size of 330g. It comes with a best before date of either October 31, 2021; December 20, 2021 or January 4, 2022.
Shoppers are also being urged to return 275g packs of Aptamil's oats, raisin and apple bircher muesli 10+ months. This has a best before date of either December 27, 2021, or January 16, 2022. Plus, Aptamil's multigrain and fruit bircher muesli 10+ months is also being recalled in the same 275g pack size.
Affected products will have a best before date of either December 28, 2021 or January 16, 2022.
Parents with any of the above packs are being warned not to feed them to their baby. Instead, you should return it to the shop where you bought it from for a refund, with or without a receipt.
Alternatively, you can contact Aptamil's customer service on 0800 996 1000 and Cow & Gate on 0800 977 8880.
