Baby Food RECALL

Not a question, just FYI

Baby Food Recalled, May Be Botulism-Tainted
Product Sold At Toys R Us, Babies R Us Stores

WASHINGTON -- Plum Organics of Emeryville, Calif., is recalling some of its apple and carrot portable pouch baby food because of concerns over possible botulism contamination.

The product was sold individually throughout the country at Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores. The recalled product is sold in 4.22-ounce pouches, with a "best by" date of May 21, 2010, and UPC 890180001221.

"The product did not meet the FDA guidelines for proper acidity level," Paul Gerhardt, a member of the Plum Organics action team, said in a statement.

The company is concerned that the baby food may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism, a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition. Consumers should not use these product, even if they appear normal, because of possiable health risk.
