Gerber Sues Maryland Governor

February 24, 1986|from Associated Press

Gerber Products Co. today sued Maryland Gov. Harry Hughes and other state officials for $150 million after the state banned sales of a baby-food product suspected of containing fragments of glass.

"Gerber strongly believes that the unilateral conduct of the governor of the state of Maryland has only created a climate of fear and confusion among the consuming public at a time when copycat actions should not be encouraged by acts of public officials," Gerber said. Consumers in at least 14 states have reported glass contamination in Gerber foods, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said that it has found no basis for a recall and that all the incidents were isolated.
