FDA Alerts Consumers About Bobbie Baby Infant Formula

The FDA has issued a health alert to consumers about Bobbie Baby infant formula. The product was manufactured in Germany and exported to the United States. The products do not provide adequate nutrition levels for some infants.

The babies most at risk include infants who are born prematurely or with a low birth weight, with low iron levels at birth, and for those who are at risk for becoming iron deficient due to illness. Inadequate iron intake can lead to iron deficiency anemia, which can cause irreversible damage to cognitive and functional development.

The recalled product is Bobbie Milk-Based Powder Companion Formula. The product is sold in a 14.1 ounce (400 gram) packages. The packaging is in green and brown cardboard boxes, with 2, 4, or 8 unites per box, with the Bobbie logo. The codes on the recalled products are: L6236501Z001; Use By: 9.15.2020; L6236501Z002; Use By: 9.15.2020; L6236501Z003; Use By: 9.16.2020; L6236501Z004; Use By: 9.16.2020. They were shipped between the dates of May 12, 2019 and May 30, 2019.

The formula was sold online by Bobbie Baby, Inc. through the firm website. Based on information given to the FDA buy the firm, the products were sold and distributed only in the San Francisco Bay Area of California

In addition to the lack of nutrient levels, the Bobbie Baby Infant Formula also does not have labeling for these nutrients that are required in infant formula: linoleic acid, vitamin K, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B6, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin C, copper, iodine, and manganese. If infant formula is low in those nutrients, infants can suffer from poor growth, nutrient deficiencies, and serious health problems.

The FDA also inspected the Bobbie Baby Inc. facility and found that the firm is not in compliance with FDA regulations. If you purchased this product, do not use it. Throw it away, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.

If you think your infant may have suffered an adverse event, you can report it to the FDA. Call an FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator or complete a Voluntary MedWatch form online.
