Michelle Yates, 29, was horrified after finding ‘razor sharp’ pieces of metal in her baby daughter’s nappy.

Michelle and husband Lee, 33, rushed baby Gabriella to hospital after fearing she may have been harmed by the metal.

According to the Mail Online, Gabriella was born premature and suffered from a low immune system. Worried parents Michelle and Lee were concerned that their precious baby would contract an infection from the metal.

To make matters worse, Michelle discovered more shards of metal in other nappies in the Pampers packet.

Husband Lee told Cavendish Press: “We were absolutely outraged and shocked that this had happened. You put trust in these big companies, especially when dealing with intimate hygienic areas and you expect things like this to be checked and go through quality control.

“What makes matters worse is that my daughter was born five weeks premature and has a low immune system, so having a dirty piece of metal scratching at her bottom could have given her septicemia.”

A spokesman for Pampers said: “We are very sorry to hear about this family’s experience and we are taking this matter very seriously.

“While we cannot comment on this case as it is being investigated, we are working with the parents to make sure the baby is well and to fully understand what has happened.

“Our number one priority is to ensure that our products are completely safe for the babies to use. Our nappies are made to very high standards and there are rigorous quality checks in place before the nappy reaches the store.”
