FDA Warns – Wholesale Grocers, Inc. Issues Recall of Gerber® Good Start® SootheProTM Powdered Infant Formula

According to the FDA, the Perrigo Company has taken the proactive step of issuing a voluntary recall for specific batches of Gerber® Good Start® SootheProTM Powdered Infant Formula in the United States.

Batches manufactured at the company’s Gateway Eau Claire, Wisconsin facility between January 02, 2023, and January 18, 2023 have been recalled due to the possible presence of Cronobacter sakazakii. 

Cronobacter sakazakii is a type of bacteria that can be found in the environment, particularly in powdered infant formula and other dry food products. It is known to cause rare but severe infections, primarily affecting infants and individuals with weakened immune systems. Cronobacter sakazakii can lead to serious health complications, such as bloodstream infections, meningitis, and necrotizing enterocolitis.

This particular recalled item was distributed exclusively from AWG’s Nashville Division to independent retailers operating in the following states: Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
