August 19, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Food safety officials in China’s Zhejiang province found “excessive amounts of lead” in 1,472 boxes of U.S. food maker H.J. Heinz’s AD Calcium Hi-Protein Cereal for babies, prompting a recall. The company, which issued an apology to customers, said it would recall four batches of the cereal as a precautionary measure. Safety officials urged Heinz to compensate customers who had purchased the tainted cereal.
