Aptamil® Recall Notice - Precautionary recall of a batch of Aptamil baby muesli
Updated 9 April 2021
We are recalling a batch of Aptamil Oats, Raisin & Apple Bircher Muesli 10+ Months from Tesco and ASDA UK stores.
The affected product has a best before date of 16.01.2022. The best before date can be found on the back of the pack below the barcode.
We are re-issuing this recall for this batch from Tesco and ASDA UK stores only, as a precaution. Some packs have been found to contain pieces of apple stalk and apple is one of the ingredients in this product. We are asking parents with any of these packs, with these exact best before dates, purchased from Tesco and or ASDA, not to feed them to their babies.
Nothing is more important to us than the quality and safety of our products. This incident is linked to one batch of dried apple used by our supplier as an ingredient in these products. We regret that these products do not meet our usual high standards, and we have taken action to ensure that our supplier continues to conform with our strict quality and food safety standards.
Please return any packs of Aptamil Oats, Raisin & Apple Bircher Muesli 10+ Months, with the best before date listed above, to the store where they were purchased or contact the store for a refund (with or without a receipt).
No other batches of this product or any other Aptamil products are affected by the re-issue of this call.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Where can I find the best before date?
The best before date can be found on the back of the pack below the barcode in the format DD.MM.YY
I have purchased this product with this best before date, what do I do with it?
If the best before date on the pack is definitely listed above, please do not feed it to your baby and return it to or contact the Tesco or ASDA store where you bought it for a full refund. You do not need your original receipt and the store will process your refund without it.
I have purchased this product with a different best before date, is it safe to use?
Yes. The incident has affected only one variety of muesli with the exact best before date. This is Aptamil Oats, Raisin & Apple Bircher Muesli 10+ months (275g) with a best before date of 16.01.22.
No other Aptamil products are affected by the re-issue of this recall, and your little one can enjoy them as usual.
Are you recalling any other products?
No we are not recalling any other products.
As a precaution Cow & Gate, our sister brand, is also recalling some batches of Cow & Gate My First Muesli 10+ months (330g) best before dates of 20.12.21 and 04.01.2022 also due to the possible presence of apple stalks.
