Mom Finds Mold In Fruit Pouch, Internet Says It’s Her Fault For Not Feeding Kid Fresh Food
If you feed your kid pouches of fruit, do not admit it on the internet. This is the lesson a mom learned this month, when she took to the company page of some spoiled fruit pouches she had bought to complain.
Lourdes Fernandez Gil Rodrigo discovered all the pouches in a box of Go-Go Squeeze baby food she purchased for her son were rotten. He consumed one, and she alleges he had to be treated for “intoxication” at a hospital. She took to the company’s Facebook page to complain about the mold in the rotten pouches. The company took the post down. She made another post, clearly annoyed with the company:
The deluge of internet judgment began. Not directed at the company, for taking down the post where she was voicing her grievance, but at the mom for feeding her kid the pouch to begin with:
Take that moms! You suck. Ashley can work 73 hours a week, workout, and make her kids food.
Megan doesn’t even cut her baby’s food. That’s how natural she is.
Never take short-cuts with kids! Even though they suck up all of your time and there is this annoying thing called “life” you need to deal with. You’re supposed to protect them from preservative-free, 100% fruit, all-natural fruit pouches. Duh.
Who trusts pouches? Don’t be dumb, parents.
There are no preservatives in Go-Go Squeeze, which is probably why it molded – but whatever.
I guess those pouches can be a little creepy – when you think about not being able to see what’s inside. But we consume food all the time that we haven’t seen be prepared, so I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. I certainly don’t think parents should be shamed for wanting to take a short-cut here and there. It’s much easier making fresh fruits for my kids since I moved to suburbia and got a car, but it was really hard keeping fruit stocked when I lived in the city. Whatever the reason, parents need to save time occasionally and shouldn’t be shamed for it.
