Toddler ‘formula alternative’ recalled for potential Cronobacter risk

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Graceleigh Inc. of Newport Beach, CA, doing business as Sammy’s Milk, is recalling all lots of Sammy’s Milk Baby Food because of the possible presence of Cronobacter, a bacteria that can cause severe and sometimes fatal blood infections or meningitis in infants, and because it may not provide adequate nutritional levels of iron.

Sammy’s Milk was distributed in California to Mother’s Markets retailers and through nationwide direct delivery via online sales.

The recalled product comes in a 12.84-ounce white plastic container for all lot numbers with expiration dates of 11/2016 – 8/2018.

No illnesses had been reported in connection with the product as of the posting of the recall notice.

This recall is being conducted as a result of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s determination that Sammy’s Milk is being marketed as an infant formula and not being manufactured in compliance with infant formula regulations and that testing was not performed to confirm the absence of the Cronobacter bacteria.

Although Sammy’s Milk meets FDA’s minimum requirement for iron content, there is no label warning that it contains low iron and that supplementation may be necessary.

Consumers who have purchased Sammy’s Milk are urged not to consume it and to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 949-646-4628 or email to between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. PDT, Monday through Friday.
