Cow & Gate is recalling one batch of Cow & Gate Sunny Start My First Banana Muesli from 10 months with a best-before date of 27/09/2016. No other Cow & Gate products are affected. The British-based company stated that the recall was in response to complaints regarding insects found in the pack. Since other packs in this batch may be affected, the company asked customers not to feed My First Banana Muesli with this best-before date to babies. “We are very sorry that this has happened and would like to reassure parents that we maintain strict standards at our factory and we are committed to providing the highest quality products. We have launched an immediate investigation and we will be taking all necessary steps to prevent this happening again,” the company stated on its website. Parents were advised to return any packs with that affected best-before date to the store where they were purchased for a refund or to contact the company by phone or email. Cow & Gate, a baby food and formula company headquartered in Trowbridge, England, is owned by Paris-based Group Danone. Among other products, Group Danone owns the Dannon and Evian brands.
