    Gerber Products Company is voluntarily recalling two Organic pouch baby food products after identifying a packaging defect that may result in spoilage during transport and handling.

    The recall affects Gerber Organic 2nd Foods Pouches, which are available in 3.5 ounce pouches with pears, carrots and peas, and carrots, apples and mangoes.

    Gerber said in a press release, published on the Food and Drug Administration's website, that customers may notice the affected pouches are bloated and the product inside may have "an off taste or color."

    The company said it is working to retrieve the four affected batches from retailers across the U.S. and online stores.

    Here are the products that are being recalled and should not be consumed:
