MoH voluntarily recalls Enfamil’s plant-based infant formula

The Ministry of Health (MoH) via its Chemistry, Food and Drug Division is advising the public of the voluntary recall of 145,000 cans of Enfamil ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula.

The recall is due to the possible cross-contamination of two batches of the 12.9 ounce cans of formula with Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria, according to the manufacturer Reckitt. The formula, manufactured between August and September and distributed to stores across the US, Guam and Puerto Rico, has a use-by date of March 1st, 2024, on the bottom along with the codes ZL2HZF or ZL2HZZ.

While checks made with distributors locally concluded that none of the formula from the recalled batches were imported into the country, out of an abundance of caution, the Ministry advises persons who may be in possession of the recalled formula with the listed batch numbers, to discontinue use immediately and to return the product to the place of purchase where possible.

Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Office of the Director of the Chemistry, Food and Drugs and Division at 623-5242 or by emailing [email protected].

The MoH said it will continue to monitor the situation and advise the population as necessary
