Urgent warning as baby milk recalled due to ‘health risk’
Hipp UK has issued the recall of its Hipp Organic Combiotic First Infant Milk Starter Pack (6x90ml) due to the presence of fish oil, which is not stated on the outer box.
In a statement issued via Food Standards Agency the company said: “We have discovered due to a packaging error there is a small risk of some boxes not having the correct allergy information on the cardboard box, although the presence of fish oil is declared on the inner 90ml bottles.
What product is affected?
The product being recalled is the Hipp Organic Combiotic First Infant Milk Starter Pack 6x90ml.
Hipp UK said: “The recall only concerns Hipp Organic Combiotic First Infant Milk Starter Pack 6x90ml with a best before date of January 9, 2020, March 11, 2020 or April 5, 2020, please return it to your nearest Boots or Ocado retailer, or via the Hipp shop where you will be given a full refund. You do not need your receipt.
Hipp has apologised to their customers saying, “We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused and will ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
What should I do?
The packaging error means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to fish.
If you have one of these packs, please return it to the store you bought it from (this product can be found in Boots, Ocado and hipp.co.uk) where a full refund will be offered, with or without a receipt.
