“At Rafferty’s Garden, we take food safety and the safety of our consumers very seriously. We have been advised that there was an issue at the Arborio rice manufacturers where glass has entered the production process and was not detected.” a company statement says.
“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 batches are affected in the September urgent baby food recall, the company says.
Parents are advised not to feed the product to their babies, but to return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
