US recalls baby food formulas may be contaminated with deadly bacteria
Reckitt, a major US formula manufacturer, is recalling two batches of Enfamil ProSobee Simply Plant-Based infant formula due to potential cross-contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii, reports CNN.
According to the company, Review carried out as a precautionary measure as the product has tested negative for bacteria and no disease has been reported.
Reckitt is recalling approximately 145 000-ounce cans of blend produced between August and September and distributed to stores in the US, Guam and Puerto Rico. They have an expiration date of March 12,9, 1 at the bottom along with the codes ZL2024HZF or ZL2HZZ.
Consumers must discard these products or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. No other ProSobee or Reckitt products are affected.
The company states that the cause of the problem "was related to material from a third party" and that it took "all necessary corrective actions, including no longer receiving this material from the supplier."
Cronobacter was the cause of a recall of Abbott Nutrition's infant formula last year, exacerbating a nationwide shortage. Cronobacter infections are rare, but they can be serious and even fatal, especially in newborns. Bacteria live in the environment, but infections in infants are often associated with powder formulas.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received reports of four cases of Cronobacter disease and two deaths in three states last year. All infants were fed dry formula produced at Abbott's plant in Sturgis, Michigan. The FDA has identified Cronobacter in the plant, but genetic testing has failed to detect it in sick children.
Following the recall and shortage, the FDA said it was working on a plan to increase surveillance of infant formula for Cronobacter.
