Gerber is Voluntarily Recalling Two Batches of GERBERŪ Organic 2ND FOODSŪ Pouches Due to a Packaging Defect That May Result in Product Spoilage

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) advises consumers that Gerber Products Company is voluntarily recalling specific Organic pouch products after identifying a packaging defect that may result in product spoilage during transport and handling. Gerber is working to retrieve from retailers and online stores the remaining pouches from the four affected batches of GERBERŪ Organic 2ND FOOD pouches that fail to meet their quality standards. The company is offering replacement coupons for consumers who purchased the following products:

GERBERŪ Organic 2ND FOODSŪ Pouches –Pears, Carrots & Peas, 3.5 ounce pouch UPC 15000074319

Best By dates/batch codes

12JUL2016 51945335XX 13JUL 2016 51955335XX

This recall does not impact any other Gerber pouches, other Gerber products or products outside of the US.

Consumers may notice that, in some cases, the pouches are bloated and product inside may have an off taste or odor. There have been three consumer reports of temporary gastrointestinal symptoms, however, the company has been unable to confirm that these are related to the product. Consumers should not use the product, since it does not meet Gerber's quality standards.

The products were distributed at U.S. retailers nationwide and through on-line stores. Consumers who purchased pouches with the above UPCs, batch codes and expiration dates are encouraged to contact the Gerber Parents Resource Center at 1-800-706-0556 anytime day or night for a replacement coupon.
