If you have a can from one of the affected batches, please do not feed your baby with it.

IMPORTANT PRODUCT RECALL

Aptamil Multigrain Banana & Berry Baby Cereal 200g

Item code:  87-93-727

Bar Code – 5051594008342


Danone is recalling one batch of Aptamil Multigrain Banana and Berry cereal 7+ months (200g) with a best before date of 07.07.21. No other batches of this product or any other Aptamil products are affected.
We are recalling these products as a precaution because some have been found to contain small pieces of the blue plastic material used to make the packaging. We are therefore asking parents not to feed Aptamil Multigrain Banana and Berry cereal with this best before date to their babies.
The blue plastic is clearly visible in contrast to the cereal. If parents have fed their baby from one of the packs without noticing any pieces, it is very likely that the pack was not affected.
Nothing is more important to us than the quality of our products. We are sorry that this happened and would like to reassure you that this is an isolated incident linked to an equipment fault at our factory, which has now been resolved. Our factories maintain strict European and internationally-recognised standards, are regularly audited and meet all relevant legislation. We regret that this batch does not meet our usual standards and we have already taken action to reinforce our quality procedures.

This product is only sold within the UK and Republic of Ireland

What should you do?

If you have purchased Aptamil Multigrain Banana & Berry Baby Cereal  with a best before date of 7th July 2021, please return it back to the store where they were purchased for a refund. Upon receipt of documentation of these returns, we will reimburse the cost of goods to you.

If parents have questions, our Careline team is available 24.7 on 0800 996 1000 or via our website at https://www.aptaclub.co.uk.contact-aptaclub. You do not need your receipt.

Only for the batches of condoms affected by this issue, there could be an increase in the number of condoms that burst during application or use.

Little Live Pets Voluntary Precautionary Recall Notice

At Character Options Ltd, the safety of consumers is always top priority.

After being informed by the manufacturer Moose Toys of Australia, and purely as a precautionary measure, Character Options Ltd, has decided to voluntarily recall the Little Live Pet Lil Frog (SKU: 28217) and Lil Frog Lily Pad (SKU: 28218) products. This is due to a design defect which could cause a potential safety issue if the batteries are removed.

This voluntary recall is only limited to these two Frog products and does not impact any other items in the Little Live Pets range.

Consumers who have either of these products are asked to stop using them and arrange a return to Character Options. Although there is minimal risk of injury, they are asked not to open the Frog's battery compartment or remove the batteries. Please note that Boots only sold the Lil Frog Lily Pad product.

Moose, the makers of the product, and Character Options the distributors have made the determination, out of an abundance of caution, to issue the voluntary recall.

Our supplier (Medela) has identified a potential safety issue with the detachable power plugs that come with the above products. As a precautionary measure they have launched a voluntary replacement programme for (Type G) detachable power plugs. This replacement programme is in response to a few isolated reports in which a detachable power plug reportedly broke apart as the plug was being removed from the wall, exposing live parts. These plugs were sold with the products from 2012 to September 18, 2016.

The pumps themselves are not affected, only the detachable plugs.

As a precautionary measure, Medela asks customers to comply with the following:

1.    While removing an affected power supply adapter from the socket, please remove the plug slowly and deliberately, apply as little force as possible, and handle the whole adapter with utmost attention and caution. If you apply a certain level of force, an affected detachable power plug might break apart.

2.    If the detachable power plug breaks, turn off the power source before removing it from the wall. Remove the detachable power plug from the power socket and do not use it before a replacement is sent to you.

3.    You may use the breast pumps Swing and Swing Maxi with batteries.

If you have an affected plug, please contact Medela immediately. They will send you a free plug replacement as soon as possible. Please keep the power supply base, which is not affected. You can register online for your free plug at www.medela.com/ukplug or contact Medela Customer Service at 0044 (0)161 776 0400.

Batches with expiry dates: 01.07.16, 22.07.16, 21.08.16, 10.09.16

Due to a labelling error the manufacturer is withdrawing from sale the four batches of this baby food with the expiry dates shown above.

The jar incorrectly displays ‘no added egg' and ‘gluten free' in a tick box although both egg and wheat are correctly shown in the ingredient list.

This product is suitable for the majority of babies but the presence of egg and wheat make it unsuitable for babies who are allergic/intolerant to wheat or egg and therefore they should not consume this product.

If the item you purchased carries one of the four expiry dates shown we're asking that you return it to your nearest Boots store for a replacement or a refund.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you do have any concerns or need any further advice then please speak to someone at your local Boots store or call Cow & Gate's Care line on 0800 977 4000 or visit their website www.cowandgate.co.uk for further information.
