Tesco has recalled a brand of baby milk after concerns that it may be contaminated with plastic.
The supermarket giant warned customers not to use SMA Wysoy Soya Infant Formula 800g after some cans were found to contain pieces of blue plastic.
The flecks, which are believed to come from the product’s complimentary scoop, present a choking hazard to infants. Nestle UK and Ireland, the owner of the brand, issued an immediate recall of the formula once it became aware of the issue.
The items which have been deemed unsafe to consume include those with best before dates of August 2021, October 2021, January 2022, June 2022 and September 2022.

“We have identified the source of the problem and have already put in place the necessary corrective measures to address the issue,” said Nestle.
Customers who have bought SMA Wysoy Soya Infant Formula can apply for a refund at Tesco with or without a receipt.
The Wysoy Soya Infant Formula is currently the only plant-based alternative to cow’s milk formula for babies on the UK market. It is designed for infants with a lactose intolerance or for families who choose not to purchase dairy products.
