Precautionary Product Recall - New Zealand Only



Products produced before 21st May 2013 and after 2nd August 2013 have been cleared of any potential contamination.

This issue does not affect any Nutricia products sold in Australia and China.

Following extensive tracing we are pleased to announce that Nutricia's precautionary recall relating to the Fonterra contamination is, as of today (12th August), ONLY limited to Karicare Stage 1 New Baby Infant Formula (from birth) and Karicare Gold+ Stage 2 Follow On Formula (from 6 months) produced between 21st May 2013 and 2nd August 2013 (inclusive).

Products not manufactured within these dates are now excluded from the precautionary recall.

This means that Karicare Stage 1 New Baby Infant Formula and Karicare Gold + Stage 2 Follow On Formula produced before 21st May 2013 and after 2nd August 2013 are now confirmed safe to use.

• Karicare Stage 1 New Baby Infant Formula (from birth) Recall now limited to product with a production date between 21st May 2013 - 2nd August 2013 (inclusive)

Sachets and stick packs are NO LONGER part of the precautionary recall.

The Managing Director of Nutricia ANZ, Ms Corine Tap, said she was relieved and extremely pleased to announce the lifting of the precautionary recall for the above-mentioned products produced outside of the time period 21st May 2013 to 2nd August 2013.

"This has been a very stressful time for all NZ Mums, Dads and carers and I am pleased I can now give them some good news," she said.

"I am sorry for any inconvenience or stress caused by our earlier precautionary recall on all batches of these two products, but the safety of our consumers cannot be compromised. It had to be done to ensure safety and certainty.

"I thank New Zealanders for their understanding during this terrible time. I also wish to thank MPI for its work to help resolve this situation."
