Nestle recalls baby formula
June 10, 2004
A BABY formula which could cause babies to become unsettled and show symptoms of constipation and diarrhoea was today recalled by its manufacturer.
Nestle Australia Ltd said in a statement that NAN 1 Probiotic Starter Infant Formula with Bifidus, 900g size, with the use by date of August 5, 2005, was being recalled. "An incorrect mix of formulation occurred during the manufacturing process which has resulted in some products not meeting the Food Standards regulations," the statement said. "Because of possible changes in the protein and iron levels in the formula, babies who consume the affected product may become unsettled and exhibit symptoms of constipation and/or diarrhoea and fewer wet nappies." Nestle has set up a hotline – 1800 069 678 – for those concerned about the product.
