Loblaw Co., the parent company of No Frills, Loblaws, and the Superstore grocery chains, has recalled its PC Organics brand apple, blueberry, and green pea strained baby food because of a food poisoning threat. 


The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued a “high-risk” release Saturday which warned that 128 milliliter packets of the baby food with Oct. 31, 2017 expiry date stamped on the label should not be consumed because they could contain bacteria known to produce botulism.


The containers, with the UPC code 0 60383 06292 7, should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased as soon as possible.

Botulism is a serious illness that can cause muscle paralysis. It’s caused by a neurotoxin and produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
