Recalled Enfamil baby formula.

Reckitt recalling formula due to possible contamination

February 23, 2023

Reckitt, the maker of Enfamil baby formula, announced Feb. 20 it is recalling 145,000 cans of Enfamil ProSobee Simply Plant-Based infant formula due to a possibility of cross-contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria.

Cronobacter bacteria can cause life-threatening sepsis or meningitis. Symptoms include poor feeding, irritability, temperature changes, jaundice, grunting breaths and abnormal movements. Cronobacter infection also can cause bowel damage and may spread through the blood to other parts of the body.

The recalled formula was sold in 12.9-ounce containers manufactured between August and September 2022. The products were sold in retail stores in the United States, Guam and Puerto Rico.

Recalled batches can be identified by the number on the bottom of the can. Recalled products are ZL2HZF and ZL2HZZ, both with a UPC Code of 300871214415 and a “Use by date” of “1 Mar 2024.” The affected formula should be disposed of or returned to the place of purchase for a refund.

Reckitt said the formula tested negative for the bacteria; however, the recall was issued out of an abundance of caution. The company said the possible contamination was linked to a material from a third party, which it is no longer using.

No illnesses or adverse events have been reported. Parents or caregivers with questions should consult with their pediatrician, call 1-800-479-0551 or email consumer.relations@rb.com.

More information on the recall is available at the Enfamil website.
