Gerber Baby Cereal Choking Hazard

In case you haven’t heard already

Gerber Products Company, a division of Novartis Consumer Health, is voluntarily recalling all packages of Gerber ORGANIC Rice and ORGANIC Oatmeal Cereals due to a potential choking risk. A limited quantity of product may contain lumps of cereal, which do not dissolve in water or milk and pose a potential choking hazard. Gerber has received choking complaints, but no reports of injury. The FDA is aware of this recall.

According to The London Free Press,

Gerber dominates the U.S. baby-food market, with the company holding a 79 percent share, according to Morgan Stanley.

Instead, look for Earth’s Best Baby Food, a brand of the Hain Celestial Group, owned in part by the HJ Heinz company. This is one of many examples of corporate-owned organic food companies.
