PITTSBURGH — The H.J. Heinz Co. announced it has recalled one batch (270 cases) of Many Many Vegetable Cereal baby food in Hong Kong because of trace levels (1.6mg/kg) of melamine. The company said the variety being recalled is less than 1% of its baby food sales in Hong Kong.
Heinz called the move "precautionary," and follows new legislation in Hong Kong that sets a limit for melamine for children under 36 months at 1mg/kg.
All other Heinz varieties were found to be free of melamine following widespread testing, the company said.
