Gerber Voluntarily Recalls Cheese Ravioli Over Mislabeling

Editor
Only consumers who have an allergy or sensitivity to eggs are at risk of a serious reaction if the product is ingested

Last year, Gerber voluntarily recalled organic baby food pouches over a packaging defect that may cause spoilage concerns. Just last week, the baby food company issued another voluntary recall regarding the potential mislabeling of Cheese Ravioli Gerber Pasta Pick-Ups packages.

The mislabeling oversight includes the egg allergen omission from the “Contains” list, although it does list “egg” in the full ingredient list, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

The Cheese Ravioli Gerber Pasta Pick-Ups packages with the UPC code 159070 were distributed in retail stores and online, but only within the United States.

Gerber discovered the mislabeling after a consumer contacted the company. Gerber is now in the process of updating all of their packaging to include clear labeling of allergens, including egg, milk, and wheat.

If consumers have any questions, they can contact the company 24/7 at (800) 510-7494.
