Beech-Nut Recalls 1,920 Pounds of Baby Food After Piece of Glass Found in Product
Beech-Nut has recalled approximately 1,920 pounds of baby food amid concerns the product may be contaminated with shards of glass, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The New York-based company found out about the problem after a consumer recently called to complain about a small piece of glass they found in a jar of baby food, the department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service stated on USDA’s website Tuesday.
The affected product is the company’s 4-ounce glass jars of “Stage 2 Beech-Nut CLASSICS sweet potato & chicken.”
It has the establishment number “P-68A” on the USDA’s inspection mark and an expiration date of December 2016. The jars include product numbers “12395750815” through “12395750821”.
According to USDA, the items were shipped and sold in stores across the country.
The consumption of the product was connected to one report of an oral injury, the company said. USDA has received no further reports of injuries or illnesses.
Consumers have been asked to direct questions about the recall to Beech-Nut’s consumer hotline at (866) 674-4446.
