New Jersey is among multiple states in the country to be alerted to a recall of a baby formula due to possible contamination, the U.S. Food And Drug Administration FDA said.
According to FDA officials, Reckitt, a producer of nutrition products, announced late Monday that, out of an abundance of caution, it has chosen to voluntarily recall two (2) batches of ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula in 12.9-ounce containers manufactured between August 2022 and September 2022 due to a possibility of cross-contamination with the bacteria Cronobacter sakazakii.
Company officials at Reckitt released the following statements:
“We are committed to the highest level of quality and safety and it is for this reason that we have taken this extraordinary measure. The batches in question tested negative for Cronobacter and other bacteria and this is an isolated situation.
“After a thorough investigation, we have identified the root cause, which was linked to material from a third party. We have taken all appropriate corrective actions, including no longer sourcing this material from the supplier.
“The health and safety of infants is our highest priority. All of our products undergo rigorous and industry-leading quality tests and checks to ensure that they meet or exceed all standards set by regulatory bodies including the World Health Organization. It is for this reason that we have the highest level of confidence in the safety and quality of every infant formula we make.”
No illnesses or adverse events have been reported. Consumers who purchased ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula should check the bottom of the can to identify whether the batch number is affected.
Products with batch codes ZLZHZF and ZLZHZZ, both with a UPC Code of 300871214415 and a “Use By Date” of “1 Mar 2024,” should be disposed of or returned to the place of purchase for a total refund.
