Baby food recalled for possible botulism

There's a national baby food recall underway.

Plum Organics is recalling some of its apple and carrot portable pouch baby food because of concerns over possible botulism contamination. The product was sold individually throughout the country at Toys-R-Us and Babies-R-Us stores.

The California-based company says the product did not meet the FDA guidelines for proper acidity level, leaving it vulnerable to botulism contamination. Botulism is a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition.

Consumers should not use these products, even if they appear to be normal, because of the possible health risk.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the baby food, and the company says no other Plum Organics products are affected.

The recalled product is sold in 4.22-ounce pouches, with a "best by" date of May 21, 2010, and UPC 890180001221.
