Gerber Good Start Gentle baby formula recalled

Gerber Products Company announced over the weekend that it is recalling a batch of its Good Start Gentle powdered infant formula due to a strange smell reported by some who purchased the product.

“The product poses no health or safety risk,” said Gerber in this statement. “In some cases spit-up and other gastrointestinal complaints have been reported.”


Consumers who purchased the Good Start Gentle formula in a 23.2 ounce plastic package from batch GXP1684 with an expiration date of March 5, 2013 should avoiding using the product and contact Gerber at 1-800-487-7763 for a free replacement.

The company said no other Gerber products have been affected by the recall.
