Recall Alert: Gerber Pasta Pick Ups
The company has recalled its cheese ravioli because it’s not safe for kids with egg allergies.
My kids were OBSESSED with Gerber Ravioli Pasta Pick Ups when they were little. So much so, that we brought them with us to every restaurant. And yes, they ate them straight out of the container, cold. Go ahead and judge if you want, but it made taking our kids out to dinner a snap.
If your children are into these things and they have an egg allergy, however, you’re gonna want to toss them. Because Gerber recently issued a recall of its cheese raviolis since some of the packages were mislabeled.
Here’s what you need to know: According to the company, the Cheese Ravioli Pasta Picks Ups contain egg, even though the ingredient is not listed in the “Contains” statement on the label. As a precautionary measure, Gerber has voluntarily removed the product from retail and online stores until labels are updated. But if your little one has an egg allergy, you should check your kitchen cabinets and pantry for the item ASAP.
