[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Wrong meta description tag showing on Front Page (1 post)

    I am using WooCommerce with the WooThemes WhiteLight Commerce child theme. After applying the latest update to both WP Seo and WooCommerce the meta description tag on the Front Page has changed to that of the first product (custom post-type).

    I have altered the meta description in the page which is assigned as the front page (as per instructions in the WP Seo settings) but that has not made a difference.

    current (wrong) meta description:
    <meta name="description" content="Vivid green silk with a hint of gold, shot through with Raspberry.">

    correct (desired) meta description tag:
    <meta name="description" content="Come and browse our collection of luxury silk scarves. A silk scarf is an elegant, fascinating accessory you'll treasure and wear, time and time again.">

    The desired meta description has been entered in the WP SEO plugin boxes for the page.

    Grateful for any help/assistance as this seems to be affecting the sites performance in Google listings.
