Probe after me­tal found in tod­dler’s sand­wich

Canning Times - - NEWS -

THE City of Gos­nells has con­firmed it is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the own­ers of Mias Bak­ery after a tod­dler al­most con­sumed a shard of me­tal while eat­ing their bread.

Eigh­teen-month-old Ser­gio Der­ada’s par­ents spot­ted the me­tal in his mouth while he was eat­ing a sand­wich on Tues­day.

They found more shards in the re­main­ing slices of the Mias bread loaf, which came from its Can­ning Vale bak­ery.

City of Gos­nells chief ex­ec­u­tive Ian Cowie said the City had sent prod­uct sam­ples to a test­ing au­thor­ity for anal­y­sis.

Mr Cowie said they would wait for the find­ings, which were ex­pected to ar­rive back within the week, be­fore de­cid­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate sanc­tions on Mias’ own­ers, Madding­ton-based Bovells Bak­ery.

“Un­der the Food Act there are a range of op­tions avail­able to the City,” he said.

“The most ap­pro­pri­ate course of ac­tion will be de­ter­mined once all the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the is­sue have been con­sid­ered.

“It is im­por­tant to note that the manufacturer of the prod­uct is aware of the is­sue, has taken steps to re­call af­fected prod­ucts and is as­sist­ing the City with its in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

A state­ment from the bak­ery said they took “the health of its cus­tomers as top pri­or­ity and re­lies on the lat­est me­tal de­tec­tion equip­ment” to en­sure their cus­tomers’ safety.
