ALERT: Baby Food Recalled at Toys ‘R Us

Submitted by jrlaw on Oct 22nd, 2009

California based Plum Organics announced baby food recall of certain products sold at Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores. The baby food was recalled for botulism risk in apple and carrot flavored baby food due to an increased risk of botulism poisoning. The baby food comes in 4.22 ounce pouches with a “best by” date of May 21, 2010. The UPC number is 890180001221.

Plum Organics, a baby food manufacturer, says the product did not meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements and even though botulism is a rare disease, if infected the illness is very serious and sometimes fatal. Symptoms of botulism poisoning include general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention. No illnesses have been reported.

Consumers who have purchased the Plum Organics Apple & Carrot pouch-based baby food with a best by date May 21, 2010 and with the UPC # 890180001221 can return the product for a full refund at any Toys-R-Us or Babies-R-Us store.

Consumers with any questions are asked to call 888-974-3555 between the hours of 8 am – 5 pm PST, or email info@plumorganics.com.
