Plum Organics has issued a second recall in less than six months. The latest recall, reported by the FDA on March 4, is for Plum Organics’ World Baby line of food pouches. The company voluntarily issued the recall after receiving 14 customer complaints of the product’s plastic spout breaking apart.
Though no injuries have been reported to date, Plum Organics felt it best to recall the products until further investigation could determine the source of the problem. This recall affects two of the World Baby line products–World Baby Italy (green pouch) and World Baby Thailand (orange pouch).
The products are labeled as follows:
World Baby Italy - Zucchini & Spinach with Pasta Marinara with “Best By” date of 09Sep14
World Baby Thailand - Roasted Pumpkin & Coconut Rice with “Best By” date of 10Sep14
Consumers should note that the World Baby Mexico and World Baby Morocco products are not affected at this time.
Anyone who has purchased the World Baby Italy or Thailand pouches can contact Plum Organics at 866-535-3774, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Consumers will be reimbursed for the purchases.
In an earlier recall last November, Plum Organics had recalled products in their Mish Mash line due to possible spoilage. At that time, parents were outraged over illnesses their children endured due to the affected products. Though the Mish Mash products problem has been rectified, the latest recall for the World Baby Italy and World Baby Thailand pouches doesn’t bode well for the company. Hopefully, Plum Organics can get these manufacturing problems under control, reassure nervous parents, and get back to selling their wide variety of nutritious, organic products for babies and children.
