Reckitt/Mead Johnson Nutrition (MJN) is recalling from the U.S. market select batches of Nutramigen Powder due to a possibility of contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii in product sampled outside the U.S. All product in question went through extensive testing by MJN and tested negative for the bacteria.
Nutramigen in 12.6 and 19.8 oz containers was manufactured in June 2023 and distributed primarily in June, July, and August 2023. Based on the limited availability of the remaining stock of this special infant formula, it is believed that much, if not all, of the products recalled in the United States have been consumed. The products were distributed through retail stores nationwide. The batches in question can be identified by the batch code on the bottom of the can.
The batch codes for the recalled products are:
12.6 oz Cans
19.8 oz Cans
The products have a UPC Code of
and “Use By Date” of “1 Jan 2025”
No other U.S. distributed Nutramigen batches or other Reckitt products are impacted.
Reckitt/Mead Johnson Nutrition manufactured additional products during this finished product campaign and distributed them outside of the U.S. Reckitt/Mead Johnson Nutrition will be contacting the regulatory authorities in each of those countries to determine the proper disposition of those products.
