Plum Organics of Emeryville, Calif., is recalling some of its apple and carrot pouch baby food because of concerns over possible botulism contamination.

“The product did not meet the FDA guidelines for proper acidity level,” Paul Gerhardt, a member of the Plum Organics action team, said in a statement.

The company is concerned that the baby food may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism, a sometimes life- threatening condition. Consumers should not use these products, even if they appear to be normal.
