Beech-Nut Nutrition has recalled about 1,920 pounds of baby food products that may be contaminated with small pieces of glass.
The announcement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture identified the products as 4-oz. glass jars of "Stage 2 Beech-Nut Classics Sweet Potato & Chicken," produced on Dec. 12, 2014.
According to Beech-Nut's website, the jars feature the establishment number "P-68A" inside the USDA mark of inspection and have an expiration date of December 2016. The product numbers “12395750815” through “12395750821” are on the cap. The jars were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
Beech-Nut Nutrition, based in Amsterdam, N.Y., voluntarily chose to recall the products after a consumer found a small amount of glass in a jar and a report of an oral injury. There have been no other similar reports of glass in its food.
A statement on Beech-Nut's website said: "The quality and safety of our products is our number one priority. We know we have not met the expectations of parents who rely on Beech-Nut for quality nutrition for their babies and toddlers in this case, and for that we apologize."
Beech-Nut is encouraging consumers with questions about the recall to contact their consumer hotline at 866-674-4446. Consumers are also asked to return the recalled products to the store where purchased for a full refund or exchange. For more information, visit beechnut.com/recall.
