The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that company Gerber Products is voluntarily recalling specific Organic products after identifying a packaging defect that may result in product spoilage during transport and handling. The company is in process of retrieving the remaining pouches from the four affected batches of GERBER® Organic 2ND FOOD pouches that failed to meet their quality standards from retailers and online stores. The company is offering replacement coupons for consumers who purchased the following products:

GERBER® Organic 2ND FOODS® Pouches –Pears, Carrots & Peas, 3.5 ounce pouch UPC 15000074319

Best By dates/batch codes

  • 12JUL2016 51945335XX

If consumers notice that the pouches are bloated and product inside may have an off taste or odor, the product should not be used since it does not meet the quality standards. There have been three consumer reports of temporary gastrointestinal symptoms, however, it hasn’t been confirmed that these are related to the product.

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.
