FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 24, 2016 –

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 our 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 FOOD pouches that fail to meet our quality standards.   We are offering replacement coupons for consumers who purchased the following products:

GERBER® Organic 2ND FOODS® Pouches –Pears, Carrots & Peas, 3.5 ounce pouch

                UPC 15000074319

                Best By dates/batch codes

              Best By dates/batch codes

  • JUL132016  51955335XX
  • JUL142016 51965335XX

This recall does not impact any other Gerber pouches, other Gerber products or any Gerber 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. 

At Gerber, we place the health and well-being of babies above all else, and we hold our foods to high standards of quality. Gerber remains committed to providing high quality products and helping families nourish healthy children.  Parents with additional questions are encouraged to contact our Parents Resource Center at the phone number mentioned above.
