Infant Formula Recalled Due to ‘Off Odor’

Some Gerber Good Start Gentle powdered infant formula is being recalled, not because it poses a health or safety risk according to the Gerber Products Company, but because it might have an unpleasant odor.

The company says it has received complaints that the product’s “off odor” has caused infants to spit up or have gastrointestinal issues. 

The recalled Gerber Good Start Gentle powdered infant formula is in a 23.2 ounce plastic package from batch GXP1684 with an expiration date of March 5, 2013.

Consumers who have the product with the batch code and expiration date above may contact the Gerber Parents Resource Center at 1-800-487-7763 for replacement. Additionally, Gerber says it is working with retailers to retrieve any remaining product from this batch.

No other Gerber or Gerber Good Start products are involved in the recall.
