THE FOOD SAFETY Authority of Ireland has recalled a batch of Cow & Gate baby food over the possibility that it has been contaminated with pieces of rubber glove.

The authority has issued a recall for 250g jars of Cheesy Broccoli Bake for children aged 10 months or more, with a ‘best before’ date of 28 December 2020.

According to the FSAI, some jars of the batch contain small pieces of a thin blue rubber glove, but no other batches of the product or any other Cow & Gate products are affected.

The implicated batch is sold by Boots Ireland only.

The authority has asked wholesalers and retailers to remove these products from shelves and to display point-of-sale notices to inform customers.
