Veggie Booty Recalled

Bookmark and Share

Hey moms and dads, don’t let your kiddies eat Veggie Booty. It’s being recalled because of possible salmonella contamination.
The FDA said on Thursday at least 52 people in 17 states had become sick after eating the green-colored snack food marketed by Robert’s American Gourmet. The New Jersey-based company said it had temporarily stopped making and selling the snack, which contains spinach, kale and other vegetables.
“Almost all the illnesses have occurred in children under 10 years old, with the most cases in toddlers. Most persons had reported bloody diarrhea; four were hospitalized,” the FDA said in a statement.
“Veggie Booty is often consumed by children, so parents are encouraged to watch their children, and seek medical care if they observe signs of illness,” the FDA added.

So sorry kids, mama knows best.

Earth’s Best Recall- Apple Peach Barley

Bookmark and Share

Lunch time here, and as usual, The Bear was all set to get a jar of Earth’s Best baby food. He’s been eating this stuff since he was six months old. Of course he’s still getting breast milk, and now real finger foods, but when I resort to a prepared jar of mush, it’s always Earth’s Best.
Now here’s a news alert from the FDA to give me pause…Earth’s Best is recalling jars of Wholesome Breakfast Apple Peach Barley 2nd Foods. There’s a possibility that there could be botulism in the jars. No one has gotten sick, and they haven’t actually found contamination (only incorrect pH levels), but the company isn’t taking any chances. If you have a jar, throw it away. Click here to read the company press release for more details.
I’m not going to abandon Earth’s Best just yet. But I will make sure I don’t have any jars of this particular flavor. And, as I always tell the kids, let’s make sure the jar makes a “pop” noise before we eat anything.
