Enfamil ProSobee 12.9oz Formula Recall

Updated February 21, 2023

Reckitt, producer of Mead Johnson Enfamil formulas, has issued a voluntary recall on two select batches of Enfamil ProSobee Simply Plant-Based. The recall only impacts 12.9oz cans that were manufactured between August 2022 and September 2022 due to a possibility of cross-contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii.

The recall involves approximately 145,000 cans. At this time, no other Enfamil ProSobee batches or other Reckitt products are impacted. Reckitt states the batches in question tested negative for Cronobacter and other bacteria and this is an isolated situation. After a thorough investigation, they have identified the root cause, which was linked to a material from a third party. They have taken all appropriate corrective actions, including no longer sourcing this material from the supplier. No illnesses or adverse events have been reported. If caregivers have any questions, they should consult with their pediatrician or contact Reckitt at 1-800-479-0551 24/7 or by email at
