SINGAPORE - Baby food products made by the Canadian company Love Child Organics have been recalled due to packaging defects, the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) said on Thursday (June 7).

The move followed an alert by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency(CFIA) which said that the baby food pouches are being recalled due to concerns that the packaging might allow the entry of microorganisms that will lead to spoilage.

The 128ml packets of "organic puree" come in seven flavours, namely: Thanksgiving dinner with veggies and turkey, veggie casserole with lentils and quinoa, ratatouille with lentils and white beans, pumpkin risotto with spinach and chickpeas, hearty Bolognese, mango chicken stew and vegetarian chilli with sweet potato and kale. They all have "best before" dates up to and including May 25, 2019.

The CFIA said the seven flavours were being recalled after consumer complaints.

It is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

As a precautionary measure, the Singapore importer voluntarily recalled the implicated products from sale, the AVA said. The recall has since been completed.

"Consumers who have purchased the implicated products are advised to not consume them," the AVA added.
