Loblaw recalls PC Organics baby food over botulism concerns

Loblaw Companies Limited has issued a national recall for some PC Organics brand Apple, Blueberry and Green Pea strained baby food.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the product may contain the bacteria which produces botulism, and should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was purchased.

The recall affects 128 millilitre packets of the baby food with an Oct. 31, 2017 expiry date.

Officials say the recall was triggered by a consumer complaint, although there have been no reported illnesses to date.

The agency said it's investigating the complaint, which could lead to other recalls.

The CFIA says food contaminated with Clostridium botulinum may not look or smell spoiled, but can cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, blurred or double vision, dry mouth, respiratory failure, paralysis, and in severe cases, death.
