A company in New York is recalling a few different organic baby food pouches sold in five Target stores in Oregon fearing those pouches can be spoiled.
Nurture, Inc. said the products liability recall includes Happybaby Stage 1 and Stage 2 pouch meals as well as Happytot Stage 4 meals. The potentially spoiled pouches have expiration dates between November 2010 and January 2011.
Our firm’s San Diego personal injury attorneys understand that all products aren’t made perfectly every time, but when a product can potentially harm consumers, companies need to issue recalls as soon as possible. When baby products are involved, those companies should be quicker than most to make sure children are not injured or the products don’t cause wrongful death.
The baby food that was recalled was sold in about 300 retail stores across the United States including five different cities in Oregon (Eugene, Sherwood, Beaverton, Wilsonville and Keizer.) The original complaint came from a consumer in California who noticed swollen pouches.
A spokeswoman for Nurture, Inc. said a manufacturing problem caused leaks or gaps in some package seams that create spoilage potential. Kate Nelson, the spokeswoman, said the company hasn’t found harmful bacteria nor have any illnesses been reported.
