April 15, 2015 — A recall has been issued for one Beech-N-Nut baby food product due to possible contamination with glass particles.
The recall was issued after Beech-N-Nut received a report of a child who suffered a mouth injury after eating the product. No additional injuries or illnesses have been reported, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The recall affects “Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken,” which was sold in 4-oz glass jars. The product was sold nationwide and had a best-by date of December 2016. Approximately 1,920 pounds of product are affected.
The lid of the jar is marked with the establishment number “P-68A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. It may also be marked with product numbers “12395750815” through “12395750821.”
The USDA has designated this a Class I recall, which means there is a high health risk. According to the release:
“This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”
A spokeswoman for Beech-Nut told ABC News that most of those jars are still on shelves or in warehouses. They’ve been working on pulling the product since the night before the recall was announced.
