Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Children’s Muesli can be found on the Web site above.

According to the FSA, Nutricia has recalled certain batch/lots of Cow & Gate branded and Aptamil branded Muesli products for children because some packs have been found to contain pieces of Apple Stalks/Stems. The presence of the inedible Apple Stalks presents a choking hazard to babies and young children making these products unsafe to eat. Due to this reported defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Muesli products identified above.

In general, if bone, glass, metal, plastic, wood 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 Cow & Gate branded and Aptamil branded Muesli products for children products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Muesli to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-9-9, your closest hospital A&E or emergency centre equipped to properly treat choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration and/or bowel obstruction.
