Supplies of "Baby Gaga", the controversial breast milk icecream sold in central London, have been withdrawn from sale on health grounds.

The 14.99 a scoop icecream generated lots of media coverage when it was launched last week.

Press and public alike were divided on the ethical basis of the icecream - women were allegedly paid to supply the breast milk - but the main criticisms were on health grounds.

On mumsnet and other parenting forums, some mums suggested that the mummy milk suppliers should donate their milk instead to their local hospital baby unit, to help premature and sick babies.

The Baby Gaga icecream will now undergo rigorous screening tests to ensure it is safe for adult consumption, but the jury's out on whether it will be allowed to go back on sale.
