(Updated 7:13am 8th March 2013)
A Falmouth mum says she is shocked after seeing a supermarket selling baby milk past its best before date.
Kathryn Davidson only noticed after seven month old Oli was fed the ready made milk.
Because it happened weeks ago Environmental Health says it can not take samples to check the tot.
Kathryn has told Pirate FM other mums should check the label: "Generally you check things such as bread, milk and packed fruit and veg because it's fresh. But things that are long life have such a long life anyway you don't think they're going to get to the shelf and every get near their Best Before date.
"I wouldn't eat or drink anything that's past its Best Before date. That's my choice. I know it probably wouldn't harm me but, as a customer, if something is past its Best Before date I think it should be marked down or reduced so the customer knows."
Kathryn has told Pirate FM she has since seen other baby products past their best before being sold in Cornwall.
In a statement to Pirate FM a spokesperson for Asda said: ''We take any complaint about baby products extra-seriously; we have tight processes in place to avoid these incidents. Unfortunately on this occasion we didn't meet our own high standards and have moved quickly to investigate this. Customers can be reassured that all our stores have carried out a number of extra checks.''
