Gerber Recalls Baby Formula Over Odor
By BILL TOMSON
March 9, 2012


Nestle SA's Gerber is recalling infant formula because of consumer complaints of bad odors, the Food and Drug Administration said Friday.

Gerber said it is trying to get one production batch of Gerber Good Start Gentle Infant Formula off the market, but stressed the "product poses no health or safety risk."

The FDA said in a statement, "Gerber notified the public that it recalled one lot of Gerber Good Start Gentle Powdered Infant Formula, 23.2 ounce plastic package, because the affected product might have an off-odor noticeable to some consumers. In some cases, spit-up and other gastrointestinal complaints have been reported."  ::snipping2::
The batch number is GXP1684 and the product has a March 5, 2013, expiration date, but a Nestle spokesman said he didn't know how big the production batch is or how much of the product was sold.
