A concerned mum has issued a warning to other parents after discovering 'adult content' on the back of a packet of biscuits.
After discussing the matter with other parents, the mum was shocked to discover that the My Little Pony biscuits were being sold at Heron Foods across Hull and East Yorkshire.
The snack, My Little Pony - Mini Biscotti, was purchased from a Hull-based Heron Foods and an unnamed mother was surprised to find the graphic content when she followed the link on the packet.
The manufacturer, App Kids Co, had a similar issue last month after another parent discovered a link to a pornographic website on the back of a packet of Paw Patrol snacks.
The outraged mum has been left 'furious' in light of her discovery and has urged other parents to keep an eye out for it.
She said: "I'm furious that children can access this. All it takes is a kid to type that web address in and their innocence would be destroyed."
She added to MEN Media: "I wouldn't wish that conversation on anyone - parents need to know about this because they are perfect for kids' lunchboxes. I can't bear thinking about it going into schools where so many children could access it."
It's believed that the domain is currently owned by someone residing in Lianyungang, China.
However, it had been owned by App Kids Co before it ceased operations last year.
Addressing the matter, a spokesperson for Heron Foods said: "We've been working with the supplier to ensure this product is recalled across all our stores nationwide. Customers should return the products to their nearest Heron Foods store for a full refund."
Tyla has also contacted Heron Foods for comment.
Lidl had a similar approach to the matter when eagled-eyed shoppers spotted the same graphic link on the back of Paw Patrol snacks.
A statement on its website shared last month read: "Lidl GB is recalling the above-mentioned branded product as we have been made aware that the URL of the supplier which is featured on the back of the packaging has been compromised and is being directed to a site that is not suitable for child consumption."
