In their recall information Gerber said that customers may notice that, in some cases, the pouches are bloated and product inside may have an off taste or odor. There have been three consumer reports of temporary gastrointestinal symptoms, however, they have been unable to confirm that these are related to the product.  Out of caution they have issued a recall to ensure that no one falls ill from consuming their product.

Gerber is working to retrieve from retailers and online stores, the remaining pouches from the four affected batches of GERBER® Organic 2ND FOOD pouches that fail to meet their quality standards. They are offering replacement coupons for consumers who purchased the following products:
