Nestle orders French baby food recall on glass contamination fears

1 commentBy Rory Harrington , 30-Jun-2011

Nestle France has launched an immediate investigation after recalling more than 30,000 containers of baby food over fears of glass contamination.

The food giant said it had ordered the recall as a precautionary measure after a mother discovered a piece of glass in a container of its P’tit Pot brand of baby food.

The company said some 34,000 pots of the product made in the same batch were being recalled and advised consumers who had purchased the affected run not to use them.

The problem is confined to France with the recall centred on banana flavoured P’tit Pot sold in lots of two 80 gram jars. No other cases of glass contamination have been reported to date, said the company today.

The bar codes on the recalled products are 7 613033089732, with an expiry date of October 2012. The batch number is L 10980295.

Nestle said that no other products within the P’tit Pot range had so far been affected.

Breast milk hasn't had one recall to date!

Pretty good record....compared to infant formula:glass...contaminations...bad cans...festering warehouses...maybe it is time to 'kick the can' and bring health back to babies worldwide?
