Allergy Alert: Infant Formula Sample Packs Recalled

Evansville, IN (SafetyAlerts) - Mead Johnson Nutritionals is recalling certain sample packs of its LactoFree infant formula because the packages fail to list ingredients on the back of the box.

The company warned that infants allergic to milk protein are at risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.

The recalled sample packs contain two 3 ounce ready-to-use Nursett bottles and two Easy One single serve powder packets. The sample packs were shipped to 30 stores in nine states: Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.  Products distributed by health care professionals are not affected by the recall, according to a company recording.

No other sizes or forms of the LactoFree product are affected by the recall. The company said it had received no reports of any infants who have become ill because of the labeling error.

Consumers who bought the product should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions can call Mead Johnson at 1-888-222-9223.
