“Company name: Beech-Nut
Brand name: Beech-Nut
Product recalled: Stage 1, Single Grain Rice Cereal
Reason of the recall: Presence of Inorganic Arsenic above Guidance Levels
FDA Recall date: June 08, 2021
Recall details: Beech-Nut Nutrition today has issued a voluntary recall of one lot of Beec... h-Nut Stage 1, Single Grain Rice Cereal. This recall is a result of a routine sampling program by the State of Alaska which found that samples from that production lot of Beech-Nut Stage 1, Single Grain Rice Cereal tested above the guidance level for naturally occurring inorganic arsenic set by the FDA in August 2020, though the rice flour used had been tested and confirmed as being below the FDA guidance level for inorganic arsenic.
FDA has recognized that trace elements such as these are widely present in the environment, including water, soil and food; and has also stated that exposure to elevated levels of naturally occurring inorganic arsenic can pose a health hazard to young children.
The specific Beech-Nut Single Grain Rice item (UPC Code# 52200034705) being recalled has an expiration date of 01MAY2022 and product codes: 103470XXXX and 093470XXXX. The expiration date and product numbers can be found at the bottom of the Beech-Nut Single Rice Cereal canister.
These specific product codes were distributed nationally through retail and online. In addition to issuing the voluntary recall, Beech-Nut has also decided to exit the market for Beech-Nut branded Single Grain Rice Cereal. Beech-Nut is concerned about the ability to consistently obtain rice flour well-below the FDA guidance level and Beech-Nut specifications for naturally occurring inorganic arsenic.
No illnesses related to these product codes have been reported to date, and no other production dates or Beech-Nut products are affected by this recall. Consumers who may have purchased Beech-Nut Rice Cereal with product codes: 103470XXXX and 093470XXXX with expiration of 01MAY2022 should discard the product.

When I went to examine everything that I put on my burger. I smelled the lettuce it had a strong chemical smell. Which I didn’t notice because my daughter was rushing me out the house. I told her I needed to eat something because I was hungry. I’m still waiting on some relief. I don’t know if this is serious or what I should do. My stomach is starting to cramp now. ”
