Loblaw Companies Ltd. has recalled PC Organics baby food pouches that were sold through February 8, 2017 because a manufacturing error could permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum, a bacteria that causes botulism.

PC Organics Baby Food Recall

Excess water in the product could support the growth of dangerous bacteria under certain circumstances. However, contaminated food may not look or smell bad.

The recall was triggered by a consumer complaint. No illnesses were reported. The symptoms of botulism include: nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, blurred or double vision, dry mouth, respiratory failure, paralysis, and death.

The recall was expanded to include a much larger number of PC Organics baby food pouches after an inspection by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

The FDA also warned U.S. consumers not to eat or serve PC Organics baby food “due to potential presence of dangerous bacteria.”

The products were sold at the following locations:

Ontario: Fortinos, Loblaws, No Frills, Real Canadian Superstore, Real Canadian Wholesale Club, valu-mart, Your Independent Grocer, Zehrs, Shoppers Drug Mart, and affiliated independent stores

Atlantic: Atlantic Superstore, Dominion, Cash&Carry, Real Canadian Wholesale Club, Your Independent Grocer, Shoppers Drug Mart, and affiliated independent stores

Québec: Club entrepôt, Maxi, Maxi & Cie, Presto, Provigo, Provigo le Marché, AXEP, Pharmaprix, and Intermarché

West: Extra Foods, Loblaws City Market, No Frills, Real Canadian Superstore, Real Canadian Wholesale Club, Your Independent Grocer, Shoppers Drug Mart, and affiliated independent stores
