February 22, 2007: Earth’s Best Baby Food Recalled With Risk of Botulism

Earth's Best Organic 2 Apple Peach Barley Wholesome Breakfast baby food has been recalled. The food may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism. Botulism, though rare, can be fatal.

The FDA has warned consumers not to use the product, even if it does not appear to be spoiled. Instead the food should be destroyed, FDA said. The recall was initiated by Hain Celestial Group – which had distributed 4,072 cases of the individual jars and 38,298 variety packs – on February 9, and it is ongoing.

The baby food in question is part of Earth's Best "2nd Vegetables, Fruits and Blends" for babies six months old and older. The recalled jars of the UPC code 23923-20223 or 23923-20295. The expiration date is 13 SEP 08 or 14 SEP 08.

Botulism is a serious paralytic illness caused by a nerve toxin, which is produced by the bacterium. The potent toxin blocks nerve function leading to respiratory and musculoskeletal paralysis. The illness is most typically characterized by double vision, inability to swallow, difficulty speaking and inability to breathe. Immediate medical attention is required.

Consumers with questions should contact Hain Celestial Group at 1-800-434- 4246.
