Slovakia – Cronobacter prompts infant formula recall in Slovakia

Food Safety News

A brand of infant formula has been recalled in Slovakia because of Cronobacter sakazakii contamination.

The Public Health Authority of the Slovak Republic (UVZSR) said the issue was detected as part of official food controls by authorities. No related illnesses have been reported.

The affected goat’s milk infant formula was made in the Czech Republic by Goldim. The product is “Naše mléko 1” with a date of Oct. 31, 2023, and lot number L430. It is intended for infants up to 6 months of age.

The product was analyzed in an accredited regional public health authority (RÚVZ) laboratory and it did not comply with the microbiological legislation for Cronobacter sakazakii.

UVZSR said this means the formula is considered not to be safe and should be withdrawn from the market.
