A batch of an Ella’s Kitchen pouched baby food has been recalled from Tesco over fears it could present a choking risk.

The affected run of Stage 3 Seriously Comforting Cottage Pie with a Pinch of Cinnamon, which was supplied only to Tesco stores, carries a best before date of February 2013. The company said there was a chance the product could contain hardened cinnamon that presented a risk of choking.

“We hope that any concerns parents may have are answered and reassured by the steps we have taken to investigate the issue, recall the small number of affected pouches, and put in place measures to prevent it from occurring again,” said the company, adding that no other Ella’s Kitchen products were affected.

Customer notices have been displayed in Tesco stores explaining why the product has been recalled.
