The recalled rice baby cereal was distributed nationally through Walmart’s stores and online.

Customers who may have purchased the rice baby cereal are encouraged to discard the product or return it to Walmart for a full refund.
No illnesses related to the product lots have been reported to date and no other production lots or Parent’s Choice products are affected by this recall.
