Parents who buy Heinz baby food will want to double check their pantry shelves this week, or perhaps even consider making their own mushy pea concoctions. The Canadian company has expanded its recall to include two products that could be spoiled thanks to broken seals.
A little less than two weeks ago, Heinz recalled its Chicken with Broth 100 ml baby food thanks to safety problems with the jars (UPC 0 571660 7). According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the unsafe seals could lead to food spoilage. On Sunday, the CFIA expanded that recall to also include the 213 ml glass jars of Sweet Potato and Beef Medley infant food.
If you have some of the latter on hand, look for the expiration dates of Aug. 4, 2017, and the UPC code 0 579050 2. Fit the bill? Return the jars to where you purchased them for a refund.
If your child has consumed food from either of these jars, be sure to monitor him or her for symptoms like diarrhea or vomiting. So far, there hasn’t been any reported cases of illness in Canada according to CTV News.
