Possible Botulism Contamination Prompts Baby Food Recall

Comments Off

Apple and carrot portable pouch baby food has been voluntarily recalled by Plum Organics due to possible botulism contamination. The California-based company announced the recall Tuesday, saying the product failed to meet FDA requirements.

According to a company press release, the company is concerned the baby food may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism, a serious and sometimes life threatening condition.

The products were sold nationwide at Babies-R-Us and Toys-R-Us stores. They were sold in 4.22-ounce pouches, with a “best by” date of May 21, 2010 and marked with the following UPC 890180001221.

The recalled products should not be used, even if they appear normal. Consumers can return the affected baby food to any Babies-R-Us or Toys-R-Us for reimbursement.

To this date, there have been no reports of illness associated with the baby food. No other Plum Organics products are affected by the recall.
