Gerber Issues Recall for Two Organic 2nd Foods Pouches

If you feed your baby or toddler Gerber fruit and veggie pouches, you should check the packaging. The company is voluntarily recalling Gerber Organic 2nd Foods pouches with pears, carrots and peas, as well as Gerber Organic 2nd Foods pouches with carrots, apples and mangoes because of a packaging defect that could cause the food inside to spoil.

As a precaution, Gerber is pulling these products with the affected batch numbers from shelves and are asking consumers to avoid eating the products if they have the affected batch number on the packaging. No other Gerber pouches or Gerber products are part of the recall.

Contaminated packages may potentially appear to be bloated or inflated, and if eaten, could have an unusual smell or taste. The company had received several reports of gastrointestinal symptoms, prompting the recall, although they have not yet confirmed that the illnesses reported were caused by the products.

The FDA shared photos of the recalled products along with news of the voluntary recall on Facebook on March 24.

The recall involves the following products and batch codes:
