    Default Woolworths product recall- Baby Macro food pouches.

    I just received an email from Woolworths saying their Baby Macro Organic tomato and chicken pasta purée has been recall. I've taken a photo of the email and attached below.

    Thought I should pass it on.

    I saw this on the news.

    I personally would avoid all flavours made on or around that day. The blade was found in that flavour they have recalled, but who is to say it won't appear in another flavour?

    Very true. I don't use any of those pouch products but it would be very scary to find something like that in your baby's food. Did they say whether a costumer found it or was found through routine checks?

    A customer found it when feeding her baby.

    Do people not find it a little freaky that woolworths are sending emails to people about this because they know items you buy

    I got the email and I have never bought pouch food. I thought they would just send it to all the rewards card members.

    Very scary thought at something like that being on baby food

    But you probably purchase other baby items, which they would know.

    It's based on your rewards card.
    If I buy a certain ingredient in store, it will then be included in my online shopping list to purchase again.
    A bit annoying when I purchase something random, like Spiderman birthday cake that I wouldn't really purchase again or very often.

    I see babies all the time sucking the purée or yogurt or whatever straight out of these pouches! This could have been so so much worse lucky Bubs mum found it first

    Yep, I am familiar with how it works and it does make me wonder. Part ofthe reason why I don't have flybuys or rewards is because I don't like them sharing my details/information.
