Tainted baby food is recalled

  • Follow Latest News

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 products, even if they appear to be normal, because of the possible health risk.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the baby food, and no other Plum Organics products are affected, the company said in a statement.

More information is available by calling (888) 974-3555 or by e-mailing info@plumorganics.com.

anytime you have doubt about

anytime you have doubt about the quality of a product you have on hand you can always muscle test it to see if it is toxic to your body. Great method for determining what needs to be thrown away out of the refrigerator.

Thank God that people have

Thank God that people have good sense and would never rely on "muscle testing" to see if baby food has BOTULISM in it before feeding it to a baby.

Today unless an item is

Today unless an item is recalled, muscle testing is the only method a consumer could possiblity have unless they are going to have everything they take in, lab tested. Muscle testing is a system God put in our bodies and everyone has used it before whether people realize it or not. It is there for the using for anyone who chooses to do it. It's only drawback is that it is free and simple which makes it dis-trusted by most.
