Plum Organics announced a voluntary recall of certain products due a manufacturing defect that may cause pouches to swell and spoil, according to ABC News.
The company said in a statement on Friday that products in their Baby Stage 2, Tots Mish Mash and Kids lines "do not meet our highest quality standards."
"As a father of two, I know how it feels to want nothing but the very best for our kids and yours," Neil Grimmer, company president and co-founder said in a statement. "Over the years, Plum has worked hard to earn the trust of parents, and we fully intend on maintaining that trust. We are taking every action to ensure that our highest standards are being met."
The recalled products have "Best By" dates ranging from Aug. 5 to Dec. 8 of 2014.
"It's simply a matter of a sour taste," said Plum Organics spokesperson Kara Flynn. "It may be unpalatable if someone was to consume it, it's not a food safety issue."
Flynn said that recalled products may cause "some temp gastrointestinal issues such as nausea and diarrhea."
"Parents should not feed any of these products to their children," according to the company's statement. "If you have purchased affected products, please contact us to request a product replacement voucher."
Consumers purchased the recalled products are advised to contact the Plum Organics Consumer Hotline at (866) 495-3774 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Replacement Voucher" for a product replacement.
In the email, consumers must also include first and last name, full address, phone number, Best By date, and the number of affected pouches.
