WASHINGTON (TND) — Reckitt, a producer of nutrition products, recalled two batches of Enfamil ProSobee infant formula due to possible contamination of Cronobacter sazakii bacteria.
The two batches of ProSobee 12.9 oz. Simply Plant-Based infant formula were manufactured between August and September and distributed to stores across the U.S., Guam and Puerto Rico.
They can be identified by the number on the bottom of the can with the codes ZL2HZF or ZL2HZZ and have a use-by date of March 1, 2024. The recall is being conducted out of an abundance of caution as tests of the products so far have been negative for the bacteria.
Cronobacter bacteria infections are rare but can cause life-threatening infections or meningitis.
In a news release, the company said, "We are committed to the highest level of quality and safety and it is for this reason that we have taken this extraordinary measure ... 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.
No other ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula batches or Reckitt products have been impacted.
Consumers who purchased the products with these batch codes should dispose of them or return them for a refund.
