Food Recall: two varieties of Heinz Baby Food

Posted by Daniel Palmer on 6th May 2008

Heinz Mum’s Recipe Chicken and Vegetable Risotto 7-9 Months (170G), Best Before 27/02/10.

Heinz Globetotters Vegetable Napolitana 7-9 Months (170G), Best Before 14/02/10.

Heinz Australia is undertaking a precautionary recall of the above products to ensure only products of the highest quality are provided to customers.

A preliminary investigation indicates that some zucchini seed, potentially not suitable for babies of this age, found its way into these products. This does not meet our stringent quality criteria.

It is believed that the severe drought in the Murray Darling Basin has affected the quality of the zucchinis sourced for these products and Heinz Australia has implemented procedures with local suppliers to ensure there is no repeat of this incident.

The recall applies only to Heinz Mum’s Recipe Chicken and Vegetable Risotto, batch code 0588, best before 27/02/10; and Heinz Globetotters Vegetable Napolitana, batch code 0458, best before 14/02/10.

Customers are asked to return the product to the point of purchase for immediate full refund.

A customer care line has been established. If customers have any concerns or queries about these products, they can call 1800 888 803.
