Beech-Nut Nutrition is recalling approximately 1,920 pounds of baby food products that may possibly be contaminated with small pieces of glass.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that 4-oz glass jars containing Stage 2 Beech-Nut Classics sweet potato & chicken baby food is subject to recall, according to the United States Department of Agriculture Press Release.
This discovery comes after the company received a complaint from a customer who found a small piece of glass in one jar. The company also received a report of an oral injury from eating the baby food, leading the firm to recall the jars.
According to CBS News, Beech-Nut released a statement on their website declaring:
“We have initiated a voluntary recall for our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken following a single report of a small glass piece found in a jar of the product. Outside of this single report, we have no indication that any other jar outside of our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken is affected, but as a company of parents and families we are acting with an abundance of caution.”
Beech-Nut confirmed that no other flavors or products are affected by the recall. But consumers should check their jars of this flavor that have an expiration date of “December 2016,” an establishment number “P-68A”, and product numbers of “12395750815” through “12395750821,” according to the USDA. If you find a recalled product in your home, the company encourages you to return the jar to your local retailer for a full refund.
