The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a baby food recall on March 4. Plum Organics has recalled a limited quantity of Baby World line of pouch products due to spout damage concerns that might pose a choke hazard.
Plum recalled two varieties of baby food – approximately 12,000 cases were shipped nationwide to grocery, mass and online retailers in the United States – when 14 customer complaints were received by the company after noticing damaged spouts.
According to the FDA, “The company announced the recall after discovering damage to the top rim of the spout in some pouches. The damage should be plainly visible as a depression in the rim, possibly with a fragment of plastic attached to the damaged area.”
The following affected pouches in this food recall are as follows:
World Baby Italy–Zucchini & Spinach with Pasta Marinara with “Best By” date of 09Sep14 (Sept. 9, 2014).
World Baby Thailand–Roasted Pumpkin & Coconut Rice with “Best By” date of 10Sep14 (Sept. 10, 2014)
No injuries have been reported to date as a result of this recall.
Consumers who have purchased any of the affected baby food can contact Plum Organics to request reimbursement by calling their consumer hotline at 1-866-535-3774 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
