The well known baby food manufacturer is recalling all of their jars of Gerber’s Cheese Ravioli Pasta Pick-Up’s. The jars are not labeled correctly and they contain egg even though it doesn’t appear on the label. A sizable number of babies are allergic to eggs and if your child is one of them, make sure you check what you have in your cabinets. If your baby is not allergic to eggs, then there is no problem feeding it to your children according to Gerber.
Gerber issued the following statement on their website:
“We are updating our food package labels to make it easier to identify foods that contain allergens. On updated packages, allergens are included in the ingredient list and are additionally called out in a voluntary ‘Contains’ statement that appears immediately below the ingredient line. However, there was an oversight on our label of Cheese Ravioli Gerber® Pasta Pick Ups® where ‘Egg’ was included in the ingredient list but was not listed in the ‘Contains’ statement.”
Gerber says the affected product will have UPC code 159070.
Gerber says children with egg allergies should absolutely not consume this product, and if you have additional questions call 1-800 510-7494.
