Make way for another recall! The FDA announced that  Plum Organics voluntarily recalled two varieties of its** World Baby line** of pouch products. The products were recalled because of periodic damage made to the plastic spouts on the pouches during manufacturing.

Here’s what you need to know:

There is a possibility that spouts could loosen, detach and present a choking hazard when the pouch is opened, and should not be given to children. Plum has received 14 consumer complaints about the damaged spouts to date, but thankfully, no injuries have been reported yet. To prevent further issues, Plum is removing all affected pouches from store shelves.

The recalled products include World Baby Italy and World Baby Thailand pouches and can be identified by the following “Best By” dates on the package:

  • World Baby Italy–Zucchini & Spinach with Pasta Marinara with “Best By” date of 09Sep14 (Sept. 9, 2014).
  • World Baby Thailand–Roasted Pumpkin & Coconut Rice with “Best By” date of 10Sep14 (Sept. 10, 2014).

The recall was announced after Plum Organics discovered damage to the top rim of the spout in some pouches. The damage should be visible as a depression in the rim, and could also have a fragment of plastic attached to the damaged area.

What to do if you own the recalled product:

Contact the Plum Organics Consumer Hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (866) 535-3774 or send an email to  [email protected] to request reimbursement. For more information, go to  www.plumorganics.com/March2014Recall. 12,000 cases of the recalled pouches were shipped around the U.S. to grocery, mass and online retailers. No other Plum products are affected by the recall.
