Gerber Foods has voluntarily recalled several batches of its Organic 2nd Foods pouches because of a packaging defect.

The Florham Park company in a statement said the defect could make the packages spoil as they are transported and have a bloated appearance. There could also be an "off" taste or odor.

The affect products are:

Gerber Organic 2nd Foods Pouches – Pears, Carrots & Peas, 3.5 ounce pouch, UPC: 15000074319

  • Batch: 51945335XX, best by date of July 12, 2016
