Infant formula recalled due to possible bacteria contamination
Nestlé Good Start Soothe formula batches should not be consumed: Health Department
Nunavut’s Department of Health is warning about a food recall of some infant formula products due to possible Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria contamination.
Certain batches of commercially-sold Nestlé Good Start Soothe infant formula were recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on Saturday.
People should not consume the following infant formula products:
Nestlé Good Start Soothe infant formula, 942 g, UPC 0 55000 38369 1
- Batch no: 301757651Z (EXP 2024 JL 18)
- Batch no: 301757652Z (EXP 2024 JL 18)
- Batch no: 301857651Z (EXP 2024 JL 19)
This recalled product should be thrown out or returned to the location where it was purchased, said department spokesperson Danarae Sommerville on Monday.
“Food contaminated with Cronobacter may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” Somerville said.
Although Cronobacter is not commonly linked to human illness, in rare cases it can cause serious or fatal infections, she said.
Cronobacter can cause rare bloodstream and central nervous system infections and has been associated with severe intestinal infection and blood poisoning, especially in newborns.
