Beech-Nut Recalls Baby Food Due to a Glass Shard

Illustration for article titled Beech-Nut Recalls Baby Food Due to a Glass Shard

A manufacturer is recalling a bunch of 1,920 pounds of baby food, after somebody found a small piece of glass in one of its products.


ABC News reports that Beech-Nut Nutrition is recalling 4-ounce glass jars of “Stage 2 Beech-Nut CLASSICS sweet potato & chicken,” specifically. (That’s whatever was produced on December 12, 2014; specific product codes available here.) According to the USDA, which announced the recall, “The company has received a report of an oral injury associated with consumption of these products.” On their website, Beech-Nut stresses that the recall was voluntary:

We have initiated a voluntary recall for our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken following a single report of a small glass piece found in a jar of the product. Outside of this single report, we have no indication that any other jar of our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken is affected, but as a company of parents and families we are acting with an abundance of caution.


Which isn’t exactly mass pandemonium, but I’m sure still very alarming if you’re feeding your baby (My Baby? My Baby!) literally anything. So please be very patient with any panicky parents in your life.
