Michigan Baby Formula Recall

The makers of Enfamil and Nutramigen, Reckitt, and Mead Johnson Nutrition, voluntarily recalled over 675,000 cans of baby formula for possible bacterial contamination.


This recall is specifically for cans of Nutramigen Hypoallergenic Infant Formula Powder. The Nutramigen formula powder is used for infants with cow's milk allergy.

The FDA explained that they do not expect a major impact on the U.S. supply and availability.

"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."

In a statement to ABC News, a Reckitt and Mead Johnson Nutrition spokesperson shared that,

"When we were alerted in December to a potential for cross-contamination in product samples outside the U.S., both Reckitt/Mead Johnson and the US FDA tested samples from the batch in question and all tests came back negative. However, Reckitt/Mead Johnson understands the incredible responsibility we have in providing what is often the sole nutrition for infants, and there can be no short cuts for this vulnerable population – therefore, we chose to recall select batches of Nutramigen out of an abundance of caution."
