Beech-Nut Nutrition, a company based in Amsterdam, New York, has issued the recall of approximately 1,920 pounds of baby food products that may be contaminated with glass particles, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced. The voluntary recall was initiated after a parent contacted the company to report their child’s injury.
The product in question, “Stage 2 Beech-Nut Classics Sweet Potato & Chicken,” was produced in December 2014 and shipped to retailers nationwide.
Beech-Nut issued the recall after receiving a complaint about an oral injury sustained during consumption of the product.
No additional reports of injury have been identified, although nationwide retailers have been instructed to remove the product from store shelves, and customers who are concerned about a related injury are asked to seek medical attention. Customers who purchased the affected item, which includes product numbers “12395750815” through “12395750821,” can return to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange.
