Gerber recalls popular baby food

Gerber issued an allergy alert and is recalling Cheese Ravioli Pasta Pickups to clarify an egg label error. 

According to the FDA Website:

Gerber Products  Company of Florham Park, New Jersey, is  initiating a voluntary recall of Cheese Ravioli Gerber®   Pasta Pick-Ups® because the egg allergen is missing from the  “Contains”  statement. The full  ingredient list on the package does  list “egg” as  an ingredient; however, the  “Contains” statement,  designed to further  alert parents to allergens in the  recipe, did not  include “egg” as is  required. Only consumers who have an allergy or  severe sensitivity  to  egg are at risk of serious allergic reaction if  they consume this  product.

 

Cheese Ravioli Gerber®  Pasta Pick-Ups®  (UPC code: 159070) was distributed nationally  through retail stores and   ecommerce and is limited to the United  States. This voluntary recall  impacts all  packages of the Cheese Ravioli variety of  Gerber® Pasta Pick-Ups®. All other Gerber products,  including other   Gerber® Pasta Pick-Ups® varieties, are appropriately  labeled.

 To  date, no illness has been reported due to an allergic reaction to egg.

 This   labeling oversight was brought to our attention as a result  of a   consumer contact. Following our own internal review, we confirmed egg   was  included in the ingredient list, but was not listed in the   “Contains” statement.  Gerber is in the process of updating its food    package labels to make it easier for parents to identify foods that   contain  allergens such as egg, milk and wheat. On updated packages,   this information  can be found in the “Contains” statement as well as   the ingredient list.

 Gerber regrets this oversight on our label. We encourage parents  who have questions to contact us 24/7 at 1-800-510-7494.
