HJ Heinz has recalled a batch of its Fruity Custard Fruit Medley baby food in the UK because the product was found to contain small pieces of plastic that present a choking hazard.
The batch code affected is 9307 with a best before end date of 03/11/10. Parents and carers are being advised not to use the product
