If the baby food you've purchased is recalled, then don't attempt to feed it to your baby. Nutricia says you should return the product to the store you bought it from to receive a full refund. You won't need a receipt.
If you've already fed your baby some food from one of the packs, Nutricia reports that it's 'very likely' your pack was not affected.
A statement from the company says: 'If you have fed your baby from one of the packs without noticing any pieces [of plastic], it's very likely that your pack was not affected. No other batches of this product or any other Aptamil products are affected.'
Nutricia has issued an apology, saying that the affected products do not meet the brand's 'usual high-quality standards'. It has also said that point of sale notices will be displayed in all shops that have sold this product.
