Out of an abundance of caution, approximately 145,000 cans of Enfamil ProSobee Simply Plant-Based infant formula has been recalled over concerns of possibly cross-contamination with Cronobacter — the bacteria behind last year’s major recall and baby formula shortage.
Reckitt, a producer of nutrition products, said the recall is being conducted out of an abundance of caution; both batches tested negative for the bacteria and no illnesses were reported.
ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula in 12.9 oz containers was manufactured between August 2022 and September 2022. The products were distributed through retail stores nationwide in the U.S., Guam, and Puerto Rico. The batches in question can be identified by the number on the bottom of the can. Recalled product batches are ZL2HZF and ZL2HZZ both with a UPC Code of 300871214415 and a “Use By Date” of “1 Mar 2024.” The recall involves approximately 145,000 cans.
No other ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula batches or other Reckitt products are impacted.
“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 a material from a third party. We have taken all appropriate corrective actions, including no longer sourcing this material from the supplier,” said Reckitt in the recall.
