Products placed into the stream of commerce are expected to be safe for use. However, there are times when defects are found in some of our most trusted products. This week, an organic baby food supplier has recalled some of its most popular baby food due to a potential hazard to the public.
Plum Organics Company is participating in a voluntary recall of some of its baby food pouches. These pouches are a part of the Baby Stage 2, Tots Mish Mash and Kids line of products. It was discovered that a manufacturing defect in the packaging may result in food prematurely spoiling. The products targeted for recall have “Best By” dates that range from August 5, 2014 to December 8, 2014 and have the letters “AT.” These pouches may swell as the food spoils.
All of these products are being removed from the shelves. If a parent has purchased one of these affected pouches an email can be sent to the company or those affected may call the company to receive a product replacement voucher.
At this time it is not known if any children have been harmed by this product. Defective products such as this one can result in a product liability case if a child’s injury is linked to the recalled food. Product liability cases evaluate if there is any negligence on the part of the company.
Individuals who have been injured by a product defect may choose to contact an attorney. An attorney that is experienced in product liability cases can help their clients determine the best legal option for their situation.
