Garden Of Life The Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.-based Garden of Life, LLC, announced a precautionary recall of its new supplement for infants, Baby Organic Liquid, because the product may present difficulties in swallowing and potentially pose a choking hazard due to the thickness of the liquid. The ingredients in Baby Organic Liquid are safe for infants.
Baby Organic Liquid is a liquid supplement packaged in a blue carton that includes a measuring syringe. The label currently instructs parents, “Do not insert syringe directly in the mouth. Dispense liquid slowly into the mouth, toward the inner cheek. May be mixed with breast milk or formula.
There has been reported that a parent had difficulties with the safe administration of the product into a newborn’s mouth. No hospitalizations or similar injuries have occurred.
The company is recalling the product in order to relabel it with new instructions, advising parents to only administer the product by mixing in either breast milk or formula and not to administer directly into the infant’s mouth.
Garden of Life launched the product as part of its Dr. Formulated line within the last two weeks with limited distribution to date. This recall affects all lots of Organic Baby Liquid, with UPC No. 58010 12073, with lot numbers 5487617, 5487717, 5487817, 5500817, with 12/2018 expiration date.
