Gerber recalls two kinds of baby food

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gerber Products Company is voluntarily recalling two organic baby foods because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says a packaging defect could cause the foods to spoil during transport and handling.

Two kinds of Gerber Organic 2nd Foods Pouches are being recalled. The company says it's recalling the two flavors, Pears, Carrots and Peas, and Carrots, Apples and Mangoes.

"As a result you may notice that, in some cases, those pouches are bloated or the product inside may have an off-taste or odor," Gerber President and Chief Executive Gary Tickle said in a statement Thursday.

"We are proactively working to retrieve all remaining pouches of the affected batches," Tickle said.

There have been three consumer reports of temporary gastrointestinal symptoms, but the FDA said it hasn't been able to confirm that the symptoms are related to the product.

The recalled pouches of Pears, Carrots and Peas have best-by dates of July 12, 2016, with batch number 51945335XX, and July 13, 2016 with batch number 51955335XX.

The recalled Carrots, Apples and Mangoes have best-by dates of July 13, 2016, with batch number 51955335XX, and July 14, 2016, with batch number 51965335XX.

Consumers are asked not to use the recalled foods and to contact the Gerber Parents Resource Center at 1-800-706-0556.
