The Food Inspection Agency along with a York Region-based company are warning the public not to consume four types of baby food. The brand in question is “My Organic Baby” and the affected products are four different types of cereals for infants. The items may be rancid.
“My Organic Baby” has issued a voluntary recall for 227 gram boxes of Barley, Brown Rice, Oatmeal and Multigrain cereal, all with expiry dates of April 2008 and June 2008. The affected products have been distributed nationally in Canada. Consumers are warned that if the cereal has an unusual odour, or smells funny it shouldn’t be consumed.

Brown Rice (UPC 878427101019),
Barley (UPC 878427101026),
Oatmeal (UPC 878427101033)
Multigrain (UPC 878427101040) – with the expiry dates of April 2008 and June 2008 were pulled from store shelves on January 18.
“While conducting ongoing shelf life evaluations of the product, we discovered an unacceptable change in the sensory profile of the product,” said Darrell Chin, Director of Technical Services for My Organic Baby. “Since the current product no longer meets the high standards of My Organic Baby, we decided to withdraw all product from store shelves.”
My Organic Baby is working closely with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to ensure all proper protocols are followed and assisting in the development of a consumer alert. Consumers that have these products should not
use them and should contact the company for product replacement information. Visit their website to learn more!
