Rate This

Concerns over possible botulism contamination have prompted a recall of some apple and carrot portable pouch baby food made by Plum Organics of California. Botulism is a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition.

The recalled product is in 4.22-ounce pouches, with a "best by" date of May 21, 2010, and UPC 890180001221, the Associated Press reported. The baby food pouches were sold nationwide at Toys-R-Us and Babies-R-Us stores.

The products should not be consumed, even if they appear normal. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the baby food. No other Plum Organics products are affected, according to the company.

For more information, consumers can call Plum Organics at 888-974-3555 or go to the company's Web site, the AP reported.
