EMERYVILLE, Calif. - Parents can't trust the "best by" date on some baby, toddler and kid foods. 

Plum Organics says the food inside some of its pouches may have spoiled, despite sealed packaging.

It's recalling all Stage 2, Tot's Mish Mash, and Kids line pouches with best by dates ranging from Aug. 5, 2014-Dec. 8, 2014.

Plum Organics issued the following statement about the recall:

Emeryville, Calif., Nov. 8, 2013 - Plum Organics is voluntarily recalling specific pouch products within its Baby Stage 2, Tots Mish Mash and Kids lines after discovering a manufacturing defect that may cause spoilage in some pouches. Recalled products can be identified by the "Best By" dates ranging from 08/05/14 (August, 5 2014) to 12/08/14 (December 8, 2014) and the letters "AT."

Plum has determined that the potential spoilage may cause some pouches to swell. Out of an abundance of caution, Plum is removing all pouches with affected codes.

Parents should not feed any of these products to their children. Consumers who have purchased affected products should contact the Plum Organics Consumer Hotline at 866-495-3774 or send an email to info@plumorganics.com to request a product replacement voucher.

"As a father of two, I know how it feels to want nothing but the very best for our kids and yours," said Neil Grimmer, president and co-founder of Plum Organics. "Over the years, Plum has worked hard to earn the trust of parents, and we fully intend on maintaining that trust. We are taking every action to ensure that our highest standards are being met."
