Supermarket giant Tesco is recalling 15 varieties of baby food following concerns that some jars have been tampered with.

The recall involves certain varieties of 7+ month Cow & Gate baby food sold in Tesco stores in the UK.

Cow & Gate and Tesco are voluntarily recalling the 200g jars as a precautionary measure.

No other Cow & Gate, Tesco, or other branded baby products are affected, according to the Food Standards Agency.

Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores selling the products. 
Notices explain why the products are being recalled and customers what to do if they have bought the product.
