Recall Alert

Nutramigen Voluntary Recall:  Reckitt/Mead Johnson announced on December 30, 2023 that out of an abundance of caution it has chosen to voluntarily recall select batches of Nutramigen LGG powder, due to a remote possibility of cross-contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii in product sampled outside the U.S. No illnesses or adverse consumer reactions have been reported. The impacted batch codes and more information can be located here.

If you have a product that is included in the recall, do not use the product but contact Reckitt/Mead Johnson at 866-534-9986 or consumer.relations@reckitt.com for return instructions and replacement product. If your infant consumed formula from a recalled batch, and you suspect she or he is having an adverse reaction, immediately call your pediatrician.
