A MUESLI CEREAL for babies has been recalled due to possible insect contamination.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSA) said it has requested the recall of a batch of 330g Cow & Gate ‘Sunny Start My First Banana Muesli’ with a best before date of 27 September 2016.

The cereal is designed for infants older than 10 months.

Cow & Gate Ireland apologised for the recall and said it came in response to “a small number of complaints regarding an insect found in the pack”.

“We have launched an immediate investigation and we will be taking all necessary steps to prevent this happening again,” Cow & Gate said in a statement.

The baby food manufacturer advised customers to return affected packs to the store where purchased and contact the company for a refund.

The FSA said point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in shops that may have sold the possibly contaminated batch.

Concerned customers can contact Cow & Gate on its careline, 1800 570 570.
