By Leigh Goessl     Jan 19, 2012 in Food
Several types of baby food were recalled yesterday due to rancidity. The recall was announced by Loblaw Companies Limited and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
These cereals were distributed throughout Canada.
According to a statement issued by the CFIA, the recall lists eight types of President's Choice Organics infant cereals as being pulled from store shelves. Loblaw is voluntarily participating in this recall.
Consumers are being warned the infant cereals may have "an unpleasant rancid odour, or taste."
The affected President's Choice Organics infant cereals products are as follows:
Mixed Grains with Apple (add water) 8+baby, Oat cereal (add breast milk or infant formula) 6+baby, Oat Cereal (add water) 6+baby, Rice Cereal with Banana (add water) 7+ baby, Rice Cereal (add breast milk or infant formula) 6+baby, Rice Cereal (add water) 6+ baby, Wheat Cereal (add water) 6+ baby, and Wheat Cereal with Mixed Fruit (add water) 7+ baby.
The cereals are packaged in green and white boxes and all carry a size of 227 grams. For product size and UPC codes associated with the recalled cereals, please visit CFIA's page which outlines further product details.
To date one illness has been linked with the consumption of the cereal. Officials advise consumers that if the cereal smells "off", to not consume the product. Any parents or caregivers who have fed infants any of these cereals are being advised to discontinue use and watch the infant for any symptoms, which may include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Consumers are also being advised they can contact the Toronto-based [url=http:// http://www.loblaw.ca/ t=_blank]Loblaws Limited by phone at 1-888-495-5111 or by emailing customerservice@presidentschoice.ca with any questions or concerns.
