Egg allergy? Important message from us. We are voluntarily recalling Cheese Ravioli Gerber® Pasta Pick-Ups® to clarify egg labeling.
March 8, 2017
Dear fellow parents,
We know you think about every bite that your little one takes, and so do we.
We are updating our food package labels to make it easier to identify foods that contain allergens. On updated packages, allergens are included in the ingredient list and are additionally called out in a voluntary “Contains” statement that appears immediately below the ingredient line.
However, there was an oversight on our label of Cheese Ravioli Gerber® Pasta Pick Ups® where “Egg” was included in the ingredient list but was not listed in the “Contains” statement.
As a precautionary measure to protect little ones with egg allergies, we have chosen to voluntarily remove this product from our retail and on-line stores until labels are updated.
Cheese Ravioli Gerber® Pasta Pick-Ups® should not be eaten by anyone allergic to egg. This variety also contains wheat and milk, which are appropriately labeled. For little ones without these allergies, it is safe to consume. This only impacts Cheese Ravioli Gerber® Pasta Pick-Ups®. All other Gerber products, including other Gerber® Pasta Pick-Ups® varieties, are appropriately labeled.
As a dad, I understand that giving your little one the best is the most important thing. I sincerely regret this oversight on our label and want to reassure you that we are taking action. I apologize for any concern this may have caused. We have been proudly devoted to babies for the last 90 years and we will continue to work hard to keep your trust.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us 24/7 at 1-800-510-7494.
