Gerber company is voluntarily recalling two batches of pouch food products.

A package defect in some organic pouch products may result in spoilage, according to the company.

Gerber said Thursday that it is offering replacement coupons for consumers who purchased:

-- GERBER Organic 2ND FOODS Pouches -Pears, Carrots & Peas, 3.5 ounce pouch UPC 15000074319, best by dates/batch codes: 12JUL2016 51945335XX and 13JUL 2016 51955335XX

Consumers may notice that, in some cases, pouches are bloated and the product tastes or smells off. There have been three reports of gastrointestinal symptoms, but the company said it cannot confirm that these were related to the product. Consumers should not use the product.

The products were distributed at online and at retailers nationwide. Consumers who purchased the recalled pouches can call 1-800-706-0556 for a coupon.
