Attention, parents: Gerber is recalling some baby food. 

On Thursday, the company announced a voluntary recall of some organic baby food pouches because of a packaging problem that could cause the food to spoil during transport.

The recall affects two batches of Gerber's Organic 2nd Foods Pears, Carrots and Peas pouches, and two batches of its Carrots, Apples and Mangoes pouches. All the affected batches have "best by" dates between July 12 and July 14.
