Recall on popular baby food as it may ‘contain glass’

Before you feed your hungry toddlers tonight, be sure to check what you’re serving up.

There’s been a recall on a popular baby food over fears it ‘may contain glass’.

Two batches of Rafferty’s Garden Vegetable Risotto for infants 8 months+ in a 120g pouch, with the Best Before dates of 10 August 2018 and 12 August 2018, are affected.


The Product Safety Australia website explains “food products containing glass may cause injury if consumed”.

In a statement, the company said it had been advised of an “issue at the Arborio rice manufacturers”.

“At Rafferty’s Garden, we take food safety and the safety of our little consumers very seriously,” the statement reads.

“Although we are confident of our rigorous quality screening mechanisms in place, we have initiated a recall of the affected batches as a precautionary measure.”

“No other Rafferty’s Garden product or batch is affected by this recall.”

The website advises the product not be consumed and instead returned “to the place of purchase for a full refund”.

They have been sold at supermarkets and pharmacies across Australia, including Coles, Big W, IGA and Sigma Healthcare in Queensland and New South Wales since August 1.
