Organic baby food maker Green Monkey is suing its former packaging producer, Aperio, after a product recall. 

Small plastic discs were found in its baby food, which saw New Zealand company Green Monkey issue a product recall in 2011, reported stuff.co.nz.

It is now trying to recover nearly $1m NZD ($837,000 USD) in costs, lost sales and brand damage it associates with the recall.
