A blending error has prompted a recall of some cans of Neocate specialized infant formula, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday.
About 3,700 cans of the formula contain protein levels lower than that declared on the label, United Press International reported. Short-term use of the recalled formula would be unlikely to cause nutritional problems for infants, but long-term consumption may affect growth in certain infants, said Nutrica North America Inc. of Gaithersburg, Md.
The FDA said the recalled 14-ounce cans were distributed to pharmacies, healthcare professionals and consumers nationwide. The recall includes cans with "Lot#P91877" printed on the bottom of each can. The lot number also appears on the right hand side of the case label, UPI reported.
For more information, consumers can call the company at 800-365-7354, options 8-6061.
