    Default recall on organic gerber rice and oatmeal cereal

    Just wanted to inform...I heard on 1010 wins...a NY news radio station about Gerber recalling their Organic Rice and Oatmeal cereals. Apparently at some point the cereal may clump into bits of solids.

    anyone giving their LO this beware!!!

    Thumbs up Re: recall on organic gerber rice and oatmeal cereal

    Yeah.. i'd rather give my baby a homemade food. Kinda unpractice.. but I can asure that the food she eat is safe and we can really control the quality
    and also.. no preservatives!! for sure...

    Anyway, does anyone knows how to make rice biscuits? i really want to give my baby some biscuits. But i found that ordinary baby biscuits in my country are kinda sweet... i don't want my baby to be a sugar-addicted .. hahahaha....
