Baby food recalled

A brand of baby food distributed by Loblaw has been voluntarily recalled upon the possibility of botulism contamination.

The PC Organics brand of apple, blueberry and green pea strained baby food, in the 128 millilitre container and distributed nationally, has been recalled by the company.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Feb. 3 that there have been no reports of illness related to consumption of the baby food, but the recall was triggered by a consumer complaint.

The recall relates to one specific lot of the food bearing a best before date of Oct. 31, 2017. Anyone who has purchased the baby food should throw it out or return it to place of purchase.

Symptoms of botulism include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, dry mouth, respiratory failure and paralysis. It can be fatal in severe cases.

The CFIA said in a news release that it is conducting a food safety investigation related to this recall.
