Two batches of infant formula are being recalled due to bacterial risks. Reckitt, a producer of nutrition products, is recalling Enfamil ProSobee infant formula due to possible contamination of Cronobacter sazakii bacteria.
Cronobacter is a germ (bacteria) that is naturally found in the environment. Cronobacter can exist on almost any surface and is especially good at surviving in dry foods, like powdered infant formula, powdered milk, herbal teas, and starches.
Cronobacter is harmless for most people and infections are rare. When they do occur, they can be life threatening in infants, particularly those who are younger than two months old, premature, immunocompromised, or of low birthweight.
Importantly, no distributed product has tested positive for the presence of either of these bacteria, and we continue to test.
