Plum Organics Recall Involving Damaged Spouts

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - Plum Organics is voluntarily recalling some varieties of its "World Baby" line of pouches. Officials say there was intermittent damage to the plastic spouts during manufacturing. There is a possibility that small fragments could loosen, detach and present a choking hazard if the product is consumed.

The recalled products include World Baby Italy and World Baby Thailand varieties and can be identified by the following "Best By" dates on the package:

- World Baby Italy-Zucchini & Spinach with Pasta Marinara with "Best By" date of 09Sep14 (Sept. 9, 2014).
- World Baby Thailand-Roasted Pumpkin & Coconut Rice with "Best By" date of 10Sep14 (Sept. 10, 2014).

About 12,000 cases of the recalled products were shipped nationwide to grocery, mass and online retailers in the United States. No other Plum products are affected by this recall.

Plum has received about 14 consumer complaints about damaged spouts. No injuries have been reported to date.

The company announced the recall after discovering damage to the top rim of the spout in some pouches. The damage should be plainly visible as a depression in the rim, possibly with a fragment of plastic attached to the damaged area.

Consumers who have purchased affected products can contact the Plum Organics Consumer Hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 866-535-3774 or send an email to info@plumorganics.com to request reimbursement.
