2/21/07 // Earth’s Best Baby Food Recall » read more

To our valued customers:

There have been recent reports in the media concerning an organic baby food recall by Earth¹s Best due to possible botulism contamination. The company released a press statement on its website about the recall of its Wholesome Breakfast Apple Peach Barley second foods jar.

Baby Cubes & More would like to ease any concerns parents may have about our products. The botulism bacteria can grow and produce toxins in foods that meet very specific conditions. These include an oxygen-deprived environment, found in can and jar foods, and room temperature storage. Since BabyCubes’ vegetables and fruits are flash frozen immediately after pasteurization, this prevents any bacterial activity. In addition, all our products have oxygen present in the packaging.

Laura Dorazio used to be a new mom worried about what to feed her son.

The thought of 6-month-old Dillon eating solids and jarred food that had been sitting on a shelf for who knows how long didn’t appeal, she said.

Few sympathized.

“A lot of people said, ‘I don’t know why you’re so stressed about it. It’s just food. Go to the store and buy the jars. Everyone does,’” Dorazio, 25, recalled. “I just didn’t feel that’s what I wanted him to have.”

Los Altos resident Peggy Weimer was used to cooking up batches of vegetables for her baby daughter. It was a healthful alternative to jarred food, she thought.

But after chopping, steaming and freezing the pureed vegetables into cubes, Weimer said she was exhausted. The healthful, homemade formula was “taking away from the time I could be spending with her,” she said.

NECESSITY may be the mother of invention, but in the case of San Jose’s Iria Nishimura, it was motherhood that necessitated her invention. Four years ago, Nishimura had her first son. When it came time to wean him onto solid food, she was disappointed by what she found on the market. She wanted to feed him organic baby food, but didn’t like what she found. While there were several brands of organic baby food available, the jars’ long shelf lives and additives like ascorbic acid turned her off.

I can’t get that song Ice Ice Baby out of my head. I’m not a Vanilla Ice fan (is anyone?), but I’m a fan of the new wave of frozen organic baby foods.

Organic baby food comes in jars, of course, but nutrition experts say frozen beats jarred for preserving the nutrients in produce. To serve, just pop a frozen cup or cube in the microwave or a saucepan. No processing, no preservatives, just pure organic fruit, vegetable and grain purées with amazingly bright flavor.

As a registered nurse with years of experience dealing with children’s health issues, Iria Nishimura knew what she wanted to feed her newborn sons, and it wasn’t any baby food in a jar. “When you open those jars, they smell pretty bad, and they don’t look like they should look. They have a shelf life of two or three years, and they all have additives or preservatives,” she says. “I didn’t want to give that to my baby.”
