Baby formula recalled due to possible contamination

Perrigo Co. is recalling the Gerber Good Start SoothePro Powdered Infant Formula because it might be contaminated with bacteria, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The company noted that Cronobacter sakazakii was potentially present between January 2 and 18 at its Wisconsin manufacturing facility.

No one has reported any illnesses stemming from the bacteria. The company has stressed that no distributed baby formula products have tested positive for the bacteria.

According to the FDA, these are the following lot codes affected by the recall:
