FDA recalls Gerber infant formula over risk of contamination

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The risk of a bacterial infection prompted a recent recall of the Gerber Good Start SootheProTM Powdered Infant Formula sold nationwide in the U.S.

The Perrigo Company recalled some of the products manufactured at the Company’s Gateway Eau Claire, Wisconsin manufacturing facility from Jan. 2-18 over a fear of a “potential Cronobacter sakazakii contamination.”

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration asked consumers who purchased the product after March 5 to look for the Lot Codes and “use by” dates below, which can be found at the bottom of the package.

For more information about the recall, call the Gerber Parent Resource Center at 1-800-777-7690 or visit this FDA page.
