The recalls keep coming. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning to consumers regarding potential bacterial contamination in Reckitt/Mead Johnson’s Nutramigen Hypoallergenic Infant Formula Powder products. This has led to the voluntary recall of over 675,000 cans of the formula.

UPC codes

The following recalled product batch codes and can size associated with each batch were distributed in the U.S.:

  • ZL3FHG (12.6 oz cans);
  • ZL3FMH (12.6 oz cans);
  • ZL3FPE (12.6 oz cans);
  • ZL3FQD (12.6 oz cans);
  • ZL3FRW (19.8 oz cans); and

The FDA has reported that the formula tested positive for Cronobacter bacteria, a rare but potentially life-threatening microorganism known to cause infections in newborns. Fortunately, as of now, no illnesses related to the consumption of this formula have been reported.

Manufacturers have taken swift action by voluntarily recalling the affected batches from store shelves. The company, Reckitt/Mead Johnson, assures consumers that no other Nutramigen liquid formulas or any other Reckitt nutrition products are impacted by this issue.

Consumers must check the UPC and use-by date on their Nutramigen Hypoallergenic Infant Formula Powder cans to ensure they are not using the recalled batches. If in possession of the affected product, consumers are advised to return it or dispose of it safely.

The FDA continues to monitor the situation closely to prevent any potential health risks, and consumers are urged to stay informed about the latest updates regarding the recall.
