Beech Nut Baby Food Recall Issued Over Glass Contamination Fears
Following report of at least one injury, nearly 2,000 pounds of Beech-Nut baby food have been recalled due to a risk that it may contain small pieces of glass.
A Beech-Nut sweet potato & chicken recall was announced by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on April 14, after the manufacturer received a complaint involving an oral injury resulting from a fragment of glass in one of the bottles of baby food.
According to a Beech-Nut press release, there is no evidence any other jar has been affected, but the company issued the recall out of an abundance of caution.
