Tesco recalling Heinz baby food jars over fears they contain sharp metal fragments

Tesco is recalling jars of Heinz baby food over fears they could contain sharp metal fragments.

Thursday, 19th December 2019, 11:18 am

The recall extends to all 7+ months Heinz By Nature baby food range that are sold in the supermarket.

Precautionary measure

Heinz and Tesco are voluntarily recalling the 7+ month baby food range after it was discovered a single jar had been “tampered with”. The jar was found to contain two sharp metal fragments.
