Baby Cereal Recalled Due to Choking Hazard

Comments Off

A major manufacturer of baby food has issued a product recall for two of their popular products. Gerber’s Organic Rice Cereal and Oatmeal Cereal have been recalled due to a potential choking hazard. The company has received complaints of choking but no injuries.

Lumps of cereal in some 8-ounce boxes may not dissolve in water or milk, the company said.

Customers who bought cereal (with UPC codes of 15000 12504 for rice and 15000 12502 for oatmeal on boxes’ bottom right sides) should call the Gerber Parents Resource Center at 800-443-7237 or 231-928-3000 to return it and receive a full refund.

Gerber also makes non-organic rice and oatmeal cereal that were not included in this recall. The recalled cereal was sold across the United States.
