Nestle Canada has issued a nationwide recall of Good Start 2 baby formula because infants consuming the product may not receive essential nutrients due to a manufacturing issue.
About the Good Start Baby Formula Recall
According to the Food Safety News, there have been some illnesses reported in infants who consumed the formula from the four recalled batches. It is unconfirmed whether those illnesses were caused by the Good Start 2 formula.
However, reports indicate consumption fo the recalled product can lead to lower intake of essential nutrients due to reduced bioavailability (the measure of well the body can absorb the components in food and medications).
