Infant Formula Recalls

February 20, 2023: Reckitt has chosen to voluntarily recall two select batches of ProSobee 12.9 oz. Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula due to a possibility of cross-contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii. 

Enfamil ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula in 12.9 oz containers was manufactured between August 2022 and September 2022. The products were distributed through retail stores nationwide in the U.S., Guam, and Puerto Rico. The batches in question can be identified by the number on the bottom of the can. Recalled product batches are ZL2HZF and ZL2HZZ both with a UPC Code of 300871214415 and a “Use By Date” of “1 Mar 2024."

If your infant formula is affected by the recall, do not use it! WIC participants can exchange or return the recalled formula at the store it was purchased.


Do not dilute infant formula and/or make homemade infant formula. It can be dangerous for your baby. Learn more about this.
