Gerber Organic Food Pouch Recall Alert

Gerber Is Recalling Some Organic Food Pouches Due to "Spoilage"

You'll want to check your pantry to make sure you don't have any of the Gerber Organic food pouches involved in the latest recall.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, Gerber is voluntarily recalling specific organic "2nd Foods" pouch products after identifying a packaging defect that may result in spoilage during transport and handling.

In some cases, the affected pouches are bloated and the product inside may have an "off taste or odor." Unfortunately, there have already been three reports of temporary gastrointestinal symptoms, though it's not confirmed that these are related to the product.
