Designed By Nature of California is recalling Goat’s Milk Powder, Cow’s Milk Powder and Base Milk Powder formulas because the labeling is not clear that the products are not intended to be used as infant formula.

The company is advising parents and caregivers of infants 12 months and younger to not use these products because they are deficient in multiple nutrients required for infant formula, and the products have not been tested for the presence of Cronobacter, a pathogen that can be particularly dangerous to infants and is required testing for powdered infant formula.

Designed by Nature products are purchased only online at and shipped directly to customers. Designed by Nature formulas are not intended or approved for infants.

Recalled product:

  • The recalled Goat’s Milk Powder, Cow’s Milk Powder and Base Milk Powder formulas have an expiration date between May 01, 2021 thru June 11, 2022.  

Anyone who has purchased Designed by Nature formula for an infant aged zero to 12months can email for a refund.

The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) defines infant formula as “a food which purports to be or is represented for special dietary use solely as a food for infants by reason of its simulation of human milk or its suitability as a complete or partial substitute for human milk.” FDA regulations define infants as persons not more than 12 months old.

All infant formulas sold in the United States must meet the requirements of the Infant Formula Act.
