Beech-Nut Nutrition is recalling 1,920 pounds of baby food after it found that some jars may be contaminated with small pieces of glass. The recall followed a consumer complaint, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Tuesday. There was a report of an “oral injury” after someone ingested the baby food, the department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said, but no further injuries were reported.
The recall involved 4-ounce glass jars of Stage 2 Beech-Nut Classics sweet potato and chicken, with the establishment number P-68A. The affected jars have a December 2016 expiration date and include product numbers 12395750815 through 12395750821. Also, check to see if your jars have this label to determine whether you have the recalled baby food:
Beech-Nut is providing refunds or free replacements for everyone who bought the affected jars of baby food. To get your refund or replacement, either call the company at 866-674-4446 or return the baby food to the store where you bought it. Information about the recall can be obtained via the same phone number.
If you think your baby ate the sweet potato and chicken baby food, you should “consult with your medical professional,” Beech-Nut said.
The Agriculture Department took steps “to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers,” the agency said Tuesday.
The baby food recall was designated by the department as a Class I recall, which is described as “a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”
Beech-Nut, based in Amsterdam, New York, is owned by the Swiss company Hero Group, which also owns Betty Crocker.
