According to the FSA, Cow & Gate has recalled one batch of Cheesy Broccoli Bake Stage 3 (10+ months) Baby Food products because they may contain small pieces of blue rubber, possibly from rubber gloves used in their production. You should neither serve nor consume the recalled Baby Food products identified above.

In general, if bone, glass, metal, plastic and/or rubber fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Baby Food products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Baby Food to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
