Gerber recalls two organic pouch products for packaging defect
Gerber Products Company has issued a voluntary recall for two specific organic pouch products after finding a packaging defect that may result in product spoilage during transport and handling.
According to the company, some customers may notice pouches are bloated and the product may give off an off odor or taste. Three consumers reported temporary gastrointestinal symptoms, though the company says it has been unable to confirm these were related to the product’s consumption.
The two products are:
GERBER Organic 2ND FOODS Pouches –Pears, Carrots & Peas, 3.5 ounce pouch
GERBER Organic 2ND FOODS Pouches- Carrots, Apples and Mangoes, 3.5 ounce pouch
The products were distributed at US retailers nationwide and through on-line stores.
“At Gerber, we place the health and well-being of babies above all else, and we hold our foods to high standards of quality,” the company said. “Gerber remains committed to providing high quality products and helping families nourish healthy children.”
