WASHINGTON - Plum Organics is recalled two varieties of its World Baby line of pouch products because of damage to the plastic spouts. There is a possibility that small fragments can break off and babies can choke on pieces of plastic.

Plum Organics has received 14 complaints about damaged spouts. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled products include:

•World Baby Italy-Zucchini & Spinach with Pasta Marinara with "Best By" date of 09Sep14 (Sept. 9, 2014).
•World Baby Thailand-Roasted Pumpkin & Coconut Rice with "Best By" date of 10Sep14 (Sept. 10, 2014).

Approximately 12,000 cases of the recalled products were shipped nationwide to grocery, mass and online retailers in the United States. No other Plum products are affected by this recall.

The company announced the recall after discovering damage to the top rim of the spout in some pouches. The damage should be plainly visible as a depression in the rim, possibly with a fragment of plastic attached to the damaged area.
Consumers who have purchased affected products can contact the Plum Organics Consumer Hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 866-535-3774 or send an email to info@plumorganics.com to request reimbursement. For more information visit: www.plumorganics.com/March2014Recall disclaimer icon .
