BABY JAR WARNING.
The European Food Safety Authority has found semicarbazide (SEM) in certain foods packed in glass jars and bottles with metal lids and plastic seals.
The EFSA said: "It would be prudent to reduce the presence of SEM in baby foods as swiftly as technological progress allows."
But they added parents should not stop feeding their children from jars.
Chairwoman Dr Sue Barlow said: "The risk, if any, is judged to be very small." SEM was found in small amounts in foods including pickles, jams, juices and baby foods.
