(NaturalNews) Upon discovering that a manufacturing defect could cause spoilage, Plum Organics issued a press release on November 8, 2013, regarding the voluntary recall of its Baby Stage 2, Tots Mish Mash and Kids lines. Approximately 25 products were affected.

In an open letter on the Plum Organics web site, co-founder and president Neil Grimmer writes, "We are taking this action because we recently determined that potential spoilage associated with a manufacturing defect may cause some pouches to swell. Parents should not feed any of these products to their children. If you have purchased affected products, please contact us to request a product replacement voucher."

The products affected and how to get a replacement voucher

The affected products include, but are not limited to, their Pear & Mango Organic Baby Food, Pumpkin & Banana Organic Baby Food and Berry Banana Beet Yogurt Mish Mash. For the complete list, click here: PlumOrganics.com.

Affected products have "Best By" dates ranging from 8/5/14 to 12/08/14 along with the letters "AT."

According to Plum Organics' press release, parents are encouraged to not feed any of the recalled products to their children. If you have purchased any of them, the company asks that you request a product replacement voucher by calling 866-495-3774 or by sending an email to [email protected].

Neither the open letter nor the press release mention if there have been any illnesses reported in connection with the potential spoilage of the company's Baby Stage 2, Tots Mish Mash and Kids products.

This is not the first recall for Plum Organics. In 2009, the company voluntarily recalled one particular batch of its 4.22 oz. Apple & Carrot Portable Pouch baby food for possible Clostridium botulinum contamination, which can cause botulism. Symptoms of botulism include difficulty swallowing, dizziness and double vision and can be life-threatening. These were sold at Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us locations nationally and did not result in any reports of illness in connection with the possible contamination.

Plum Organics, Inc. was founded in 2005 and sells its products to stores throughout the United States.
