Gerber Products' baby food sales dropped 12%.

BRIEFLY

March 20, 1986

The drop has occurred since complaints of glass in its baby food products began surfacing in mid-February, Chairman William L. McKinley said. "There's no question we have lost some sales and have spent a lot of money to reassure parents," McKinley told a meeting of investment analysts. Gerber, the nation's largest producer of baby food, will not know for several weeks exactly how the glass scare has affected sales in its fourth quarter, which ends March 31. McKinley said his "guess" was a drop of about 15%.
