The New York based company first found out about the possible contamination after a consumer called to express their concerns about finding a small piece of glass in a jar of baby food.
The affected product is the company’s 4-ounce glass jars of “Stage 2 Beech-Nut CLASSICS sweet potato & chicken”.
USDA’s inspection mark on the jar is “P-68A” and an expiration date of December 2016.
The jars have product numbers “12395750815 through 12395750821”.
According to USDA, the product was shipped and sold to retail locations nationwide.
There has received one report of oral injury due to the glass contamination.
Foodborne illnesses are much more harmful in younger infants and toddlers because their immune systems are not fully developed and more vulnerable.
Baby food contamination can be fatal to young infants and toddlers. It is extremely important to take the necessary precautions as parents to wash your hands and make sure the safety button on the lid is down.
Any consumer who feels concern that their child may be injured should contact a health care provider immediately.
Consumers with questions regarding the recall have been directed to call Beech-Nut’s consumer at (866) 674-4446.
