(CHICAGO TRIBUNE) — Ketchup maker H.J. Heinz Co has recalled some infant food in eastern China after it was found to contain lead in excess of the allowable limit, the company said on Monday.

The move by Heinz comes after food safety regulators in eastern Zhejiang province said on Friday that they had found “excessive amounts of lead” in the company’s AD Calcium Hi-Protein Cereal.

Heinz said it is recalling four batches of the product as a precautionary measure after a test found it exceeded the allowable limit for lead.
