Urban Legends and Hoaxes:
Gerber Free Bond Hoax

Poor Gerber was the subject of a hoax over the past few years. Here is what the email message said:




IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN BORN BETWEEN 1985 and 1997 INCLUSIVE:

GERBER BABY FOOD company lost a class action. Gerber has been marketing their baby food as "all natural". The baby food was found to contain preservatives. Under this settlement, Gerber is now responsible for giving every child born between 1985 and 1997 a $500 savings bond. However, Gerber is not responsible for advertising this settlement in any way.

To obtain the bond, send a copy of your childīs birth certificate and social security card to:

GERBER FOOD Settlement Administration Infant Litigation, PO Box 1602, Minneapolis, MN 55480





This is a HOAX and completely untrue.
