Earth's Best Baby Food Recall

I recently came across a recall on the FDA website for Earth's Best baby food. I never heard about it on the news, never saw signs up in the store. Fortunately, no one reported their babies affected by the tainted baby food, but maybe this is the reason it never made it into the news. Nevertheless, the report states the tainted food could cause botulism - reason enough to make the news in my book!

People ask me all the time why I don't just buy organic baby food and skip the trouble of making it myself. After the recent pet food scandals, I've been saying how this could easily happen in the baby food industry as well. I've been making food for my dogs for three years now, so we had no worries when the news of pet food recalls hit. Makes me glad I make baby food as well!

I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for more baby food and product recalls, and when I find them, I'll be posting them here on The Mommy Spot. So sign in to subscribe for The Mommy Spot (in the right hand side bar), and you'll find out about future recalls as soon as I do.

Here are the links for the Earth's Best baby food recall:

Yikes! Thanks for keeping us posted. I'm curious about your dog food recipes.

Surprised the heck out of me that stuff like this isn't made more public. I'm sure there are lots of recalls happening all the time, but with baby food, I'd certainly wish they would find a way to keep people more informed. As for my dog food recipes, Tracy, they're 3 years in the works! Took a long time to hammer out all the ingredients, but my vet thinks the dogs look great. He's the one who told me all dog food is the same - in a word, "bad". It's a lot of work, but they love the food and the results are wonderful. I have two happy, healthy pups who have no weight problems and fur as soft as a cat! (But don't tell them that!)
