Heinz Recalls 6 Varieties of Children’s Squeeze Puree Pouches Over Spoilage Concerns

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is notifying the public that Heinz Canada has conducted a voluntary recall of six varieties of their popular squeeze pouch baby food products. The pouches, they say,  may contain a packaging defect that may allow the entry of spoilage microorganisms.

Health Canada has reviewed the information related to these products and conducted a health risk assessment. Health Canada concluded that the health risk associated with the consumption of these products is very low to remote.  It is important, however, for parents to check their cupboards to ensure they don’t feed these products to their children.

The CPIA notes that spoiled packages may not be necessarily dangerous or easily identifiable. However, if spoiled food is inadvertently consumed, it is advisable to watch for symptoms that may include upset stomach, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Heinz reports that there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.
