Gerber Recalls Good Start Infant Formula for Odor Problem

Gerber Products Company is recalling its Good Start Infant Formula for an odor problem, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced.

Gerber Products said it is offering a replacement to consumers who purchased Gerber® Good Start® Gentle Powdered Infant Formula. The product is packaged in a 23.2-ounce plastic package from batch GXP1684 and with an expiration date of March 5, 2013.

The product poses no health or safety risk, said the agency; however, this recalled Gerber® Good Start® Gentle Powdered Infant Formula might have an off odor that is noticeable to some consumers. In some cases spit-up and other gastrointestinal complaints have been reported.

Consumers in possession of the recalled Gerber baby formula are advised to contact the Gerber Parents Resource
Center, toll-free, any time, at 1.800.487.7763 for replacement.

Gerber said it is working with retailers to retrieve any remaining product from this recalled batch. No other Gerber® or Gerber® Good Start® products are affected or involved in this recall.
