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, and you’ll find out about future recalls as soon as I do.

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

  2. I never heard about this either!!

    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!)

  4. I haven?t read this part of the book yet. Oh what other exciting and whimsical stories about deadly diseases I have to look forward to.

  5. Oh This is good for me. Thank

  6. Arthritis in canines can be a major problem that many people never even think of in older dogs.

    Can anybody reccomend a free website to find a vet tech job?

  8. Hasn’t this recall long since been completed. With an article date of 04/07 I would be inclined to think so !?!
