A recall has been issued for some Gerber infant formula


RALEIGH, NC (WTVD) – There has been a voluntary recall of some infant formulas.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services said it is warning families about infant formula recalled by Perrigo because it potentially contains bacteria that can make babies sick.

On Friday, Perrigo released a voluntary recall certain lots of Gerber Good Start SoothePro Dry Baby Formula.

These batches may contain Cronobacter bacteria. These bacteria can cause diarrhea and urinary tract infections in people of all ages and can be very serious in infants.

The recalled product was manufactured at Perrigo’s Gateway Eau Claire, Wisconsin facility.

The first symptoms of Cronobacter infection in infants are usually a fever accompanied by poor feeding, excessive crying, or very low energy levels. If your child develops these symptoms, you should notify a health care provider and seek immediate medical attention for your child, NCDHHS said.

To date, no infections related to this recall have been identified in North Carolina.

Consumers who purchased product after March 5 should check their formula’s lot codes and use-by dates, which can be found on the bottom of the package.

This recall does not affect any other batch codes. All consumers who purchased a product with applicable codes should stop using it and return the product to the store for a replacement.
