ByHeart - is recalling ByHeart Whole Nutrition Infant Formula due to the potential for cross-contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii. No distributed ByHeart product has tested positive for the bacteria.

Show more information Show less information

The product being recalled is ByHeart Whole Nutrition Infant Formula, Milk Based Powder with Iron for 0-12 Months in 24 oz containers. The formula under voluntary recall was distributed directly to consumers in the U.S. and can be identified by the number on the bottom of the can. Recalled product batches are 22273 C1, 22276 C1, 22277 C1, 22278 C1, and 22280 C1 printed with use by 01 JAN 24 or 01JUL 24.

Cronobacter bacteria can cause severe, life-threatening infections (sepsis) or meningitis (an inflammation of the membranes that protect the brain and spine). Symptoms of sepsis and meningitis may include poor feeding, irritability, temperature changes, jaundice (yellow skin and whites of the eyes), grunting breaths and abnormal movements. Cronobacter infection may also cause bowel damage and may spread through the blood to other parts of the body.

It is important to note that this recall is not related to ByHeart’s own manufacturing in any way. In addition, the company has not received any consumer complaints that would indicate any illness, to date; illness complaints are an early detection of safety concerns. If a baby has already consumed all of the formula, there is no reason for concern, and no additional action is needed. If parents have any questions, they should consult with their pediatrician.

ByHeart owns its entire manufacturing supply chain with the exception of final canning, which is conducted by a reputable third-party packager. ByHeart is taking this precautionary measure because one test sample collected from the third-party packaging facility tested positive for Cronobacter sakazakii. All product packaged that day, and the first production on the next day, was isolated for destruction and not distributed. Out of an abundance of caution, we are now recalling all product produced during the entire production run.

As a company committed to parents, ByHeart holds itself to the highest standards when it comes to safety and applauds the FDA’s efforts to oversee the safe manufacturing of infant formula. Parents can remain confident in the safety of ByHeart’s products as the company continues to expand its investments in infant formula innovation, clinical studies, and industry-leading quality standards. ByHeart’s manufacturing facility in Reading, PA, continues to operate 24/7, and the company is committed to providing customers formula in January.

What ByHeart Customers Should Do

Customers who purchased ByHeart product should check the bottom of the can and dispose of product from batches 22273 C1, 22276 C1, 22277 C1, 22278 C1, and 22280 C1. ByHeart is setting up a webpage at https://byheart.com/notices with additional information about its measures. Should customers have any other questions or want to find out if the product they have is included in the voluntary recall, please email notices@byheart.com or text ByHeart at 1-909-506-2354. The company will also be reaching out directly to all customers via email who purchased orders from these identified batches.

The Texas Department of State Health Services - has ordered all oysters harvested in the TX 1 area of southeastern Galveston Bay after reports of a few dozen cases of gastrointestinal illness among people who ate oysters from those waters. The recall includes oysters in the shell and shucked oysters harvested in the area from Nov. 17 through Dec. 7. A map of Galveston Bay oyster areas is available at dshs.texas.gov/.

Show more information Show less information

Consumers who purchased Texas oysters since Nov. 17 should check the packaging to see if they were harvested in TX 1. If the oysters were unpackaged, they should contact the seller to find the source. Restaurants should contact their distributor for information on the source of their oysters. Any oysters from TX 1 should be discarded.

DSHS closed the TX 1 area to harvesting on Dec. 8 after receiving reports from health departments in Southeast Texas and Florida that people who had consumed oysters from the area had gotten sick. Reported symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, chills and headache. People experiencing any of these symptoms after eating oysters should contact their health care provider and tell them about the exposure to oysters. No hospitalizations have been reported at this time.

DSHS epidemiologists are working with local health departments to investigate cases of illness, and DSHS will test water samples collected in the recall area to determine when it may safely reopen to oyster harvesting. No other species of seafood is affected.

Cranberry Sweets & More of Coos Bay, Oregon is voluntarily recalling its 4 and 8 ounce packages of "Mint Meltaways" candies because they may contain undeclared peanuts.

Show more information Show less information

The recalled Mint Meltaways were distributed to retail stores in Oregon and Washington and sold nationwide through mail orders since September 21, 2022 to date.

No illnesses or deaths have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the Peanut Butter Meltaways product was mis-labeled as Heirloom Mint Meltaways and peanut was not declared on finished product label.  The firm’s subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's packaging process.  The process has been corrected and the company has instituted additional safety checks and corrective actions.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Oregon Department of Agriculture.

Consumers with a peanut allergy who have purchased the affected “Mint Meltaways” are urged not to consume the product and dispose of it or return it to their place of purchase for a full refund.
