Baby Food recall If you’ve got any of those yummy Plum Organics baby food pouches lurking in your kitchen, pull them out and take a look. The Emeryville-based company just recalled a batch of its Apple & Carrot Portable Pouch baby food – it’s the 4.22 ounce size, with a use-by date of May 21, 2010, and the number #890180001221 on the bottom. No one has gotten sick and the rest of the Plum Organics line seems to be OK, but this particular batch lacked the FDA-approved acidity levels that prevent contamination with the nerve toxin – Clostridium botulinum – that causes botulism. Lovely, huh? As a precaution, Plum Organics recalled the batch. If you’ve got a pouch at home, return it to any Toys R Us or Babies R Us store for a full refund.
