Lawyer Concerned By Rusty Spring Case

Item Found In Baby Milk Container


The discovery of a rusty spring in a container of baby milk is alarming and should be tackled immediately by the manufacturer, a leading lawyer has claimed.

According to the BBC, a mother in Sheffield discovered the item as she prepared a bottle for her son. The manufacturer behind the SMA brand, Pfizer, has confirmed it is looking into how the item ended up in the product.

Katrina Elsey of Irwin Mitchell has called for the investigation into the incident to be swift and thorough, particularly to prevent any similar or more serious cases in the future.

"Consumers should be able to buy products confident that they have been produced to the highest possible safety standards,” she explained.

"I hope that improvements in safety standards can be made to ensure any serious failings are dealt with."
