    Hiya,
    I've just heard that all powdered and carton stocks of aptamil first baby milk have been withdrawn as glass has been found in the powder on numerous occasions - is this true????

    Was just wondering, it doesn't really affect me as I use cow & gate but it's absolutely terrible if it's true!!!

    Given the stink that was kicked up about botulism in Loyd Grossman jarred curry sauce, I would think that if this were true it would have been headline news by now. It's not, so I smell a hoax.

    I've just given a friend 2 big Aptamil powders and 8 cartons (Pud is on HiPP now) so hope it's not true!

    I haven't heard anything and like someone else said, it's a pretty big thing if it was true and I'm sure it would have been all over the media and on here.

    I think it would have been in the news, although some batches of aptamil have been withdrawn in the past due to various quality control issues-such recalls of just one or two batches, or the stock sent to particular stores are quite commonplace. There was quite a big recall of the Sainsbury's aptamil stock last year though its not totally clear as to why the entire stock was recalled xx

    Panic over!!! There was just a problem with the stock in one of the stores in Cornwall and they withdrew all their stock, but the checkout girl thought it had been a nationwide recall!!
