Tesco Cottage Pie

This baby food has been urgently recalled by Tesco after tiny pieces of blue plastic were found in the product. Tesco released a statement saying that a manufacturing error led to the contamination of the baby food, and they’ve asked customers to immediately stop feeding children with the affected product. They said:

We've been made aware that due to a manufacturing error, pots of Tesco Cottage Pie baby food 190g, with a best before date of 12/06/2022, may contain small pieces of blue plastic.
Please do not feed the affected product to your child.
Instead, return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.

Eat Real Quinoa Puffs

Tesco and Morrisons have also recalled Eat Real Quinoa Puffs because of milk content that wasn’t stated on the packaging. The batches affected have best before dates up to and including May 2022 and the recall applies to Eat Real Quinoa Puffs Meditterranean, Eat Real Quinoa Puffs White Cheddar, and Eat Real Quinoa and Kale Puffs Jalapeno and Cheddar.

The companies have asked all those who are lactose intolerant to return the snack for a full refund.

Cahill’s Original Irish Porter Cheddar

Cahill’s Original Irish Porter Cheddar has been recalled as it could potentially contain listeria monocytogenes—a pathogenic bacteria that causes listeriosis. This bacterial infection can cause symptoms like muscle aches, chills and can lead to severe illnesses including sepsis and meningitis.

The products that have been recalled have the batch number 21118 and a best before date of September 28 2021.
