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."
