Product Recall: Cow & Gate banana muesli recalled because of insects

2 November 2015

sad bananas Cow & Gate have recalled a batch of banana muesli for babies, thanks to complaints that insects were found in it. Lovely stuff.

Manufacturers have advised parents not to give their children Sunny Start - My First Banana Muesli with a best before date of 27 September 2016.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said it was not suitable for consumption because of "foreign bodies such as insect".

One customer opened a packet and found a spiders web, and when they took it back to the shops, they found a maggot in it. Absolutely delightful. Cow & Gate are obviously kicking off an investigation, and are saying sorry as well.

The FSA said: "Cow & Gate is recalling one batch of its Sunny Start My First Banana Muesli from 10 months on a precautionary basis because of complaints regarding insects found in the product. The company has advised that this product should not be consumed, in case other packs in the batch are affected."

"Cow & Gate has recalled the affected batch, notified its customers and displayed point-of-sale recall notices in stores."

If you have bought this product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was purchased or contact Cow & Gate (via their Careline on 0800 977 4000) for a full refund.
