Nutricia North America has announced a voluntary recall and replacement of one lot of the specialized infant formula product, Neocate Infant that was distributed between September 1, 2009 and September 11, 2009.  This recall involves a limited quantity of individual cans (approximately 3700) from Lot # P91877, and does not affect any other Neocate products or lot numbers. Nutricia announced this recall as it has been informed by the manufacturer of Neocate that, due to a one-time blending error, a limited quantity of the individual cans of Neocate Infant (original formula) contain protein levels lower than that declared on the label. This limited formulation concern does not present any immediate risks of injury or other adverse health consequences. No adverse events have been reported as a result of this issue. Although short-term consumption of product from the affected batch is very unlikely to cause immediate nutritional issues, longer term consumption might influence the healthy growth curve in certain infants.
