Plastic Pieces Found In Heinz Baby Food Spurs Recall In UK

February 3, 2010: 11:19 PM EST
Responding to calls from several concerned parents, Heinz announced a recall of thousands of jars of Fruity Custard Fruit Medley baby food because small pieces of plastic found in them present a choking hazard to infants. Besides issuing a caveat to parents, the company will display posters explaining the recall and procedures for obtaining a refund wherever its baby food is sold. “The discovery is highly embarrassing for Heinz given that, in theory, the food designed for vulnerable babies should go through stringent safety tests before it reaches customers,” the UK’s Mail Online wrote.
