June 13, 2008 — SMA Nutrition has pulled 40,530 cartons of its market leading SMA Gold liquid infant milk off shop shelves in the UK, following 11 complaints.
The ready-to-use 1 litre packs have a best before date of 12 March 2009 and have the batch number 06033G printed on top of the carton.
A spokesman for SMA Nutrition said customers complained of opening the packs to find the milk had separated and curdled.
The spokesman said: “We have taken medical opinion and understand that any upset caused by drinking affected milk would be temporary.”
He added: “As a precautionary measure we are recalling the batch from retailers and advising customers not to use product from this batch.
“No other SMA products or batches, either liquid or powder formulations, are affected by this recall. Parents can continue to use other SMA liquid and powder infant milk products with confidence.
“SMA Nutrition regrets any inconvenience or concern this recall may cause our customers and would like to reassure them of our commitment to provide babies and young children with the highest quality nutrition products.”
Concerned customers can visit the SMA Nutrition Website or call the SMA Careline on 0800 0890075 for more information and to receive a replacement carton.
