Tesco is recalling Cow & Gate baby food jars over fears of tampering


Tesco has had to recall thousands of Cow & Gate baby food jars over fears that some of them may have been tampered with.

The Food Standards Agency said 15 products are being withdrawn as a "precautionary measure".

Tesco is urging those who has bought any of the below products to return them urgently (for a full refund) and to not feed them to their babies.


According to the FSA, the recall only concerns products sold in Tesco stores in the UK, with notices being placed in supermarkets.

The 15 products affected are as follows (and are all 200g in size, for babies aged seven months and older):

Cow & Gate Butternut Squash Chicken & Pasta
Cow & Gate Courgette & Hake Rice
Cow & Gate Creamy Cauliflower Cheese
Cow & Gate Garden Pea & Turkey
Cow & Gate Potato Spinach & Beef
Cow & Gate Potato & Turkey Roast
Cow & Gate Spaghetti Bolognese
Cow & Gate Succulent Pork Casserole
Cow & Gate Tasty Cottage Pie
Cow & Gate Tomato & Courgette Pasta
Cow & Gate Yummy Harvest Chicken
Cow & Gate Apple Crumble
Cow & Gate Banana Crumble
Cow & Gate Peach Apple & Kiwi
Cow & Gate Rice Pudding
Cow & Gate

No other baby food products are being recalled or looked at for tampering by the supermarket, so if you buy your baby food from Tesco and have not bought any of the above products, there is believed to be no need to worry.

The recall applies to all batch codes and best-before dates. Both Cow & Gate and Tesco bosses have apologised for the inconvenience caused.
