Plum Organics, which makes a line of certified organic baby foods that contain no trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, or artificial ingredients and does not use BPA packaging, noted in a company news release that a mixing error that resulted in an improper blend of carrots and apples is the cause of the recall. The Apple & Carrot Food in Portable Pouches is one of six such products offered by Plum Organics and is the only product involved in the recall.
