Reckitt/Mead Johnson has voluntary recalled select batches of Nutramigen LGG powder infant formula. WIC consumers who purchased Nutramigen powder should check the bottom of the can to identify whether the batch number is affected. Consumers with product containing the batch codes listed above should contact Reckitt/Mead Johnson at 866-534-9986 or [email protected] for return instructions and replacement product. If you have further questions, please call the local WIC office at 518-565-4830.

Today, FDA is alerting parents, caregivers, and health care providers that Reckitt/Mead Johnson Nutrition has voluntarily recalled certain Nutramigen Hypoallergenic Infant Formula Powder products due to possible Cronobacter sakazakii contamination. https://www.fda.gov/food/cfsan-constituent-updates/reckittmead-johnson-nutrition-voluntarily-recalls-certain-nutramigen-hypoallergenic-powdered-infant

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall, and it is likely most of the product that was distributed in the U.S. has already been consumed.

Nutramigen is a hypoallergenic infant formula that is used by infants with allergies to cow’s milk. Although this product is a specialty infant formula, there are substitute infant formulas available.

If the infant formula your child uses is unavailable, parents and caregivers should work with their child’s health care provider to find a suitable substitute.

FDA does not expect that this recall will have a major impact on the U.S. supply and availability of powdered infant formulas, and the agency has been in communication with other manufacturers to request their assistance in ensuring a robust supply of hypoallergenic product.
