Mead Warns on Infant Formula Packs

August 4, 2001

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) _ Mead Johnson Nutritionals has asked physicians to temporarily stop distributing sample packs of its LactoFree and Enfamil infant formulas because the packages fail to list ingredients.

The company said infants allergic to milk protein are at risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product. However, it said it had received no reports of any infants who have become ill because of the labeling error.

Consumers who received the sample packs should consult their physician before using them, the Evansville-based company said Friday.

The recalled LactoFree sample packs contain two 3-ounce, ready-to-use Nursett bottles and two Easy One single-serve powder packets.

The Enfamil sample packs contain three 3-ounce, ready-to-use Nursett bottles and a single-hole nipple.

No other sizes or forms of the LactoFree or Enfamil products are affected by the warnings.

Consumers with questions can call Mead Johnson at 888-222-9223.
