Asda have recalled one of their Little Angels baby food ready meals after plastic was found inside one of the pots of baby food.

In news that comes only three months after their Little Angels newborn nappies allegedly gave a three-week-old baby a severe chemical reaction rash, the range of baby food has been recalled after a piece of plastic was found to be inside one of the pots recently.

Not only would a piece of plastic be a severe choking hazard, but it could also mean that the pots are at risk of contamination.

The pots in question are from Asda's own range of Little Angels baby food, specifically the Organic Beef & Sweet Potato Stew 12m+ variety.

They have a best before date of 10/09/2018, are priced at £1.35 and have the barcode 5054070907559.

An Asda spokesperson confirmed that they were recalling the pots as a precaution due to a small piece of plastic was found in one product, and that they're "very sorry for any inconvenience caused".

If you have bought one of the ready meal pots in question, you can return it to your nearest store for a full refund - a receipt isn't necessary.

This isn't exactly great timing for Asda, as their Little Angels nappies came under fire in July after a three-week-old baby suffered from a severe chemical reaction.

The supermarket was forced to remove all Little Angels nappies from their stores after dad Jordan Bartliff shared images of his baby son on Facebook.

Jordan wrote on Facebook: "So Saturday yesterday morning has to be the worst day of our lives so far, we opened a fresh pack of newborn little angels to put on the baby, we go to change the nappy an hour later, and these pictures are the results."

Jordan added that his son was not allergic to the nappies as that possibility had been ruled out: "It looks like a chemical reaction as been confirmed by the hospital as he's been wearing the same nappies for 3 weeks prior to this. With no problems whatsoever."

The poor little baby had been born five weeks premature, making Jordan and his family even more upset about the fact that he was now back in hospital.
