Health warning over gourmet baby food

Parents are being warned that two types of gourmet baby foods may contain peanut protein or sulphites that are not declared on the label.

Both products are made by Calgary-based Baby Gourmet. The first is Organic Moroccan Lamb with Couscous, sold frozen in a double-lined bag containing cubes measuring 10 x 25 ml. It may contain undeclared peanut protein.

The second product is Seasonal Fruit Compote, sold frozen, also in a double-lined bag and containing 12 x 25 ml cubes. It has undeclared sulphites.

According to a Dec 31 warning from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Baby Gourmet, the baby foods
were distributed in Calgary. There has been one reported illness associated with the consumption of these products.

Baby Gourmet is recalling both foods from stores.
