QQ - July 3

HI ladies, I just want you to be aware that I have found a few small (though one piece is about 3/4 mm) particles in Enfamil Lipil 38oz powder can. They look dark in color. I called the custom line and they are going to send me the shipping label to send it back for them to inspect. I have heard about the earlier Gentlease recall sometime ago. I don't know if it's happening again or it's normal residues from the process of drying the formula but I'm very disappointed. I have been using Enfamil powder (50% bm and 50% formula) and now I'm not sure what to do before they can give me an answer after testing it. Does it happen to any of you? Should I switch to the read-made or a different brand of formula all together?

ash2, I haven't heard anything on the ready-to-use liquid. Some people say it's better than the powder while some say there is no difference at all. Since you have been using the liquid one, do you notice any differences?

ry, there are some information on the recall. It's good to check it out. MEAD JOHNSON RECALLS ONE BATCH OF GENTLEASE™ POWDER INFANT FORMULA IN 24 OUNCE CANS - Batch Number BMJ19 - (EVANSVILLE, Ind. February 21, 2006) - In keeping with our commitment to provide safe and healthy nutritional products, Mead Johnson Nutritionals is initiating a voluntary recall of one batch of Gentlease™ powder infant formula in 24 ounce cans, batch number BMJ19. This action is being taken because a portion of the batch was found to contain metal particles. In the rare instance that an infant were to aspirate the infant formula into the lungs, some of these particles, if present, could present a serious risk to the baby’s respiratory system. There is also the small risk that these particles could damage the baby’s throat. Mead Johnson is not aware of any infants who have had any of these problems as a result of being fed infant formula from this batch. Any injuries a__sociated with this problem would likely manifest themselves within 3 to 4 hours. If you have any concerns about your baby’s health you should consult your baby’s health professional. The batch code is located on the bottom of the can. No other Gentlease™ batch or infant formula from Mead Johnson Nutritionals is affected by this action. Consumers who have a can of Gentlease™ with this batch number should discontinue using the product from the can and call Mead Johnson toll free at 1-888-587-7275. Consumers are asked not to return the product to their retailer.
