Gerber Replaces Good Start Formula

Gerber Products Company is offering a replacement to consumers who have purchased Gerber Good Start Gentle powder infant formula as this an off-odor has been noticed by some consumers. There have been some reports of spit-up and other gastrointestinal complaints.

The affected Gerber food is sold in the 23.2 ounce plastic packages, and the affected batch is: GXP1684. The expiration date is listed as March 5, 2013.

Consumers who have this product can contact the Gerber Parents Resource Center at 1-800-487-7763 for replacement. Additionally, Gerber is working with retailers to retrieve any remaining product from this batch. No other Gerber or Gerber Good Start products are affected or involved.

What’s going on here…..a few months ago, it was Enfamil that was pulling its product, now Gerber. Hopefully, Gerber is just applying the “better safe than sorry” rule that applies with particular force when we are taking about products being ingested by infants.
