FDA Issues Recall Over Potential Listeria Contamination in Popular Baby Food

According to a KSAT News report, certain organic baby food pouches have been recalled by the FDA.

The affected baby food is the Once Upon a Farm Organic Plant-Rich Meal, Curried Carrots & Beans. It is distributed in frozen 3.5 oz single-serve pouches across the United States. The affected batch has a best-by date of April 17, 2025, and the UPC is 81000351838.

Families are urged to discard the food or return it to the store for a refund. No injuries have been reported as a result of the potential Listeria contamination. If your infant has consumed the affected product and is showing signs of listlessness, fever, loss of appetite, or vomiting, take them to a doctor immediately.

Listeriosis Risk to Pregnant Women in San Antonio: What You Need to Know

Pregnant women and their infant children are far more likely than any other group to contract a Listeria infection. According to CDC data:

  • Pregnant women are 10x more likely than other groups to contract Listeria.
  • Pregnant Hispanic women are 24x more likely than other groups to contract Listeria.

Listeriosis is an infection caused by ingesting Listeria monocytogenes, which is a foodborne bacteria commonly found in soft cheeses, ice cream, unpasteurized milk, and raw/ready-to-eat meat and poultry products. While this disease is rare, it accounts for roughly a third of all food-bourne-illness deaths in the United States and can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, and pre-term labor.

Preventing Listeriosis

If you are an expecting mother in San Antonio, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of contracting Listeriosis.

  1. Avoid Unpasteurized Cheese/Milk — When purchasing popular cheeses in San Antonio like cotija, queso blanco, cuajada en terrón, and queso fresco, make sure the label says they are pasteurized. Do not drink unpasteurized milk.
  2. Thaw Meat in the Fridge — Not in the sink or on the countertop.
  3. Wash Produce — Even if you intend to peel them.
  4. Thoroughly Cook Meat — Use a meat thermometer to make sure it is thoroughly cooked, especially poultry products.
  5. Separate Raw Meat and Fresh Produce — Do not store them next to each other; use separate cutting boards when preparing.

You and your baby will not likely contract Listeriosis if you follow these and proper hygiene steps. However, if a contaminated food product makes you or your baby sick, you have legal options.

Suing for Listeriosis Illness/Death

If you or your baby were made very sick, or if you lost your baby due to a Listeriosis infection because of a contaminated food product, you can sue for damages.

Food manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility to ensure the products sold on American shelves are safe. If you or your baby are hurt by an unsafe product, they can be held responsible for their negligence. Sufficient evidence must be presented that links a contaminated product to your injury to make a successful claim.
