Voluntary Recall of Certain Gerber Good Start SoothePro Powdered Infant Formula | Eastern North Carolina Now

Press Release:

    RALEIGH     The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is cautioning families about certain infant formula that has been recalled by Perrigo for potentially containing a bacteria that can lead to illness in infants.

    On March 17, 2023, Perrigo issued a voluntary recall of certain lots of Gerber Good Start SoothePro powdered infant formula out of an abundance of caution due to the potential presence of the bacteria Cronobacter. The recalled product was manufactured at Perrigo's Gateway Eau Claire, Wisconsin facility. These bacteria can cause diarrhea and urinary tract infections in people of all ages and can be very serious in infants.

    The first symptoms of Cronobacter infection in infants are usually a fever, accompanied by poor feeding, excessive crying or very low energy. If your child is experiencing these symptoms, you should notify your child's medical provider and seek medical care for your child immediately.

    Perrigo's announcement on March 17, 2023, indicates that no distributed product has tested positive for the presence of this bacteria and no adverse events have been reported. No infections linked to this recall have been identified in North Carolina to date.

    Consumers who purchased the product after March 5, 2023, should check their formula's Lot Codes and "use by" dates, which can be found on the bottom of the package. No other lot codes are impacted by this recall. Any consumers who purchased product with matching codes should discontinue use and return the product to the store for replacement.
