My Organic Baby food recalled in Canada

Jan 29, 2008

Vaughan, Canada-based My Organic Baby has issued recalls on four varieties of infant cereal after inspection found some of the food to be rancid.

Food inspection tests revealed some of the company's 227-g Brown Rice, Barley, Oatmeal and Multigrain cereals with expiration dates in April and June 2008 was found to have gone bad, which the company claims is a result of recent packaging changes, the CanWest News Service reported Monday.

My Organic Baby issued the voluntary recall in connection with the investigation by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

A statement released by the company said a packaging change last year led to a shortened shelf life, which caused some of their cereals to become rancid.

"My Organic Baby sincerely apologizes for the situation and any concerns it may have caused," said company spokesperson Diana Robinson. "We are currently working to swiftly correct the packaging problem and anticipate having new product back on store shelves shortly."
