Gerber Cereal Recall!

(I have some of this cereal for my baby, glad I saw this, and am passing it along to you!)

Gerber baby food recalled

MONDAY, July 16 (BabyCenter News) — Baby food maker Gerber is recalling all packages of its organic rice and organic oatmeal cereals. The cereal may contain lumps that don't dissolve in water or milk, posing a potential choking hazard to young children. The company has received choking complaints, but no reports of injury.

Gerber organic rice and organic oatmeal cereals are sold in 8-ounce boxes. The UPC code for the rice cereal is 15000 12504, and the code for the oatmeal is 15000 12502. These numbers can be found on the bottom right side of the box.

If you have one of these products, call the Gerber Parents Resources Center at (800) 443-7237 or (231) 928-3000 to return it and get a full refund.

You can see a photo of the oatmeal cereal on the FDA's website.
