Product: Cow & Gate Sweet Squash and Chicken jars from 7 months plus (200g)

Date Code: Batches with expiry dates 01.07.16; 22.07.16; 21.08.16; 10.09.16

What’s happened:

Due to a labelling error Cow & Gate are recalling four batches of their Sweet Squash and Chicken from 7 months+ (200g) jars with the expiry dates shown above. Babies with wheat or egg allergies or intolerance should not eat this product. The product is suitable for the majority of babies but the presence of egg and wheat make it unsuitable for babies who are allergic or intolerant to wheat or egg. The jar incorrectly displays “No added egg” and “gluten free” in a tickbox although both egg and wheat are correctly shown in the ingredient list.

Cow & Gate would like to apologise for this error and would like to reassure you of their continued commitment to providing high quality products for your baby to enjoy.

What you should do:

If you have purchased one of the mislabelled jars of Cow & Gate Sweet and Chicken 7m+ (200g) from Asda, please bring it back to your nearest Asda store where you will be given a full refund, or contact Cow & Gate directly for a refund. You do not need your receipt.

If you would like any further information please contact Cow & Gate’s careline on 0800 9774000 or visit their website at www.cowandgate.co.uk for further information. No other Cow & Gate baby foods are affected.

Notes and briefings

With a year to go until the General Election and policy development now well under way, we wanted to share our views on what we at Asda think the Government could do to stimulate growth and investment in the UK, as well as giving customers more money in their pockets at the end of the month. This document is our contribution to the public policy making process, based on our knowledge and expertise of the issues and Departments which affect the retail sector.

We have provided forty-four recommendations in three sections that are designed to achieve three goals:

  • Create an efficient, effective and affordable regulatory environment for businesses to operate in
  • Ensure the Government helps businesses to exploit opportunities for growth and investment in the UK economy
  • Reduce costs for customers, providing a boost to their spending power

Whilst we appreciate that not all of these policies will be achieved over night, we have honed in on what we call our four fundamentals – the four key pillars which we think will make a real difference to both businesses and customers in the UK:

  • Reform of the existing business rates system
  • Raising of the Personal Tax Allowance in line with a full-time salary on the National Minimum Wage
  • Committing to freezing fuel duty until the end of the next Parliament
  • Relaxing Sunday Trading restrictions
