Recall!!

Popular baby food brand, Rafferty’s Garden Organic Baby Rice Cereal has been recalled due to the product being packed into an incorrect box.

Their Organic Banana Porridge was incorrectly packed into Rafferty’s Garden Organic Baby Rice Cereal packaging and there’s  concerns for those little ones with gluten allergies or intolerances.

We have issued a recall on Rafferty’s Garden Organic Baby Rice Cereal 80g with best before 17 May 2019. The recalled products have been available for sale in Coles, Big W and some pharmacies throughout Australia. Unfortunately, Rafferty’s Garden Organic Banana Porridge was incorrectly packed into Rafferty’s Garden Organic Baby Rice Cereal packaging. Food safety and the safety of our consumers is our highest priority. Although we are confident in our rigorous quality systems and the risk of reaction is low we recognise that to some of our little foodies, accidental consumption of oat gluten or banana could cause a reaction if the product is consumed. As such as a precaution we have initiated a recall of the affected batch. No other Rafferty’s Garden product or batch is affected by this recall. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, if you are in possession of an impacted product with date code 17 May 2019 please return it to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.
