Announcement

Today, Garden of Life, LLC, is issuing a voluntary precautionary recall of its new supplement for infants, Baby Organic Liquid, because the product, as labeled, includes directions for use that may be misinterpreted. The company is concerned that if not administered precisely following the labeled instructions, the product may present difficulties in swallowing and potentially pose a choking hazard due to the thickness of the liquid.

Baby Organic Liquid is a liquid supplement packaged in a blue carton that includes a measuring syringe. The label currently instructs parents, “Do not insert syringe directly in mouth. Dispense liquid slowly into the mouth, toward the inner cheek. May be mixed with breast milk or formula.” The company is recalling the product in order to relabel it with new instructions, advising parents to only administer the product by mixing in either breast milk or formula and not to administer directly into the infant’s mouth.

Garden of Life launched the product as part of its Dr. Formulated line within the last two weeks with limited distribution to date.

The ingredients in Baby Organic Liquid are safe for infants. The company’s concern leading to this recall arose after learning that a parent had difficulties with the safe administration of the product into a newborn’s mouth. While no hospitalizations or similar injuries have occurred, the company is taking this issue very seriously and taking all necessary precautions in an abundance of caution.

Garden of Life is asking any customers who purchased Baby Organic Liquid to return the product to their store of purchase for a full refund.

ABOUT BABY ORGANIC LIQUID: Baby Organic Liquid is only sold in the USA at a limited number of natural grocers, health food stores and online. If any consumer wishes to return the product, they should return the unused portion to the place of purchase for a full refund.

This precautionary recall affects all lots of Organic Baby Liquid, which includes:
