Gerber recalls GERBER® Organic 2ND FOODS® Pouches due to defect, possible spoilage

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. Because of it's commitment to high quality, Gerber is working to retrieve from retailers and online stores the remaining pouches from the four affected batches of GERBER® Organic 2ND FOODS® Pouches that fail to meet it's quality standards. 

Gerber is offering replacement coupons for consumers who purchased the following products:
GERBER® Organic 2ND FOODS® Pouches – Pears, Carrots and Peas, 3.5 ounce pouch UPC 15000074319.

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, we have been unable to confirm that these are related to the product. Consumers should not use the product, since it does not meet our high 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.
