MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

About 12,000 cases of baby food pouches have been recalled due to a possible choking hazard.

Plum Organics issued the recall Tuesday for two of its varieties of World Baby line pouch products. The recalled products include World Baby Italy and World Baby Thailand. They can be identified by the following "best by" dates:

  • 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).

According to the recall, there was intermittent damage to the plastic spouts of the affected products during manufacturing. There is a possibility that small fragments could loosen, detach and present a choking hazard.

According to the company, the damage should be plainly visible as a depression in the rim and possibly with a fragment of plastic attacked to the damaged area.

The products were sold nationwide in grocery, mass and online retailers.

The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries Consumer Food Safety Inspectors are checking stores statewide to make sure the affected products have been removed from store shelves.

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.
