Nestlé Canada recalls ‘Good Start 2’ liquid infant formula

OTTAWA, O.N. — As a precautionary measure, Nestlé Canada has requested a national recall of their ‘Good Start 2 (Omega 3 & 6, dietary fibre, and added iron and calcium) Iron Fortified Milk-based Infant Formula’, in specific 12 unit cases of 359 ml tetrapaks.

Nestlé Canada says the recall is due to a ‘quality issue.’ Minerals in the formula may separate over time, appearing as black particles in the concentrate. Because of this, there is some concern the consumption of the affected products could cause a lower intake of some nutrients. Health Canada says the recall was triggered by complaints from consumers.

The Company is working with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to verify that these products are being removed from the marketplace.

The products being recalled have the following batch codes: 512857211A (exp: 2016 MA 07), 512957211A (exp: 2016 MA 08), 512957212A (exp: 2016 MA 08), and 513057211A (exp: 2016 MA 09).

The UPC on the 12 pack is 0 65000 49277 4, and the UPC on the individual tetrapak is 0 65000 49285 9.

It’s recommended that any customer who bought a product with one of the corresponding batch codes should stop using the product. While illnesses have been reported, Health Canada hasn’t yet confirmed if those are caused by consumption of the recalled products or not.

Customers who have bought these affected infant formulas should contact Nestlé Consumer Services for a refund and throw the product out. Consumer Services can be contacted at 1-855-395-1238. The line is open Monday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET.

Health Canada classifies this recall as a ‘class 2’ hazard, defined as ‘a situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a product may cause temporary adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.’

Nestlé Canada urges parents with any health concerns to consult with their health care practitioner.
