Beech-Nut Nutrition recalled nearly 2,000 pounds of baby food that may be contaminated with small pieces of glass.

That last thing a parent wants to imagine is inadvertently feeding their child a small piece of glass. Unfortunately, that issue was all too real for one baby food manufacturer recalling nearly 2,000 pounds of baby food.

New York-based Beech-Nut voluntarily recalled 1,920 pounds of baby food after a consumer reported finding a small piece of glass in one of the jars, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The recall covers 4-ounce glass jars of “Stage 2 Beech-Nut Classics sweet potato & chicken” baby food with the expiration date of December 12, 2014. The product was shipped to retail stores nationwide.

Beech-Nut tells the USDA that it has received one report of an oral injury associated with the consumption of the baby food. However, FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness.

The recalled product contains the establishment number “P-68A” inside the USDA mark of inspection and includes product numbers “12395750815” through “12395750821”.

According to a statement on its website, Beech-Nut advises consumers that they can return the recalled products to the store where they were purchased for a full refund or exchange.
