Poison jar alert for baby food makers.
Two independent committees found that 66 out of 137 samples of glass-bottled baby food contained epoxidised soya bean oil, which is used to form an airtight seal and to prevent contamination.
ESBO levels were up to 105 milligrams per kilogram. The recommended daily intake is one milligram per kilogram of bodyweight. The Ministry of Agriculture said yesterday there was no immediate health risk. But it said it would be "prudent" to continue reducing levels.
