Contamination concerns have forced Gerber to pull some of its baby formula from store shelves.

Gerber parent company Perrigo issued a voluntary recall of Gerber's Good Start SoothePro Infant Formula "out of an abundance of caution" regarding a link to possible Cronobacter sakazakii contamination.

The impacted products were manufactured in Eau Claire, Wisconsin between January 2 and January 18.

"Importantly, no distributed product has tested positive for the presence of this bacteria, no adverse events have been reported and no other products manufactured at this facility or any other of Perrigo's facilities are affected by this recall," the company said in a statement.

Cronobacter sakazakii is a bacteria that is relatively common and typically does not impact most people, but when newborns and infants with compromised immune systems are exposed, it can potentially cause sepsis and meningitis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Every batch of infant formula is tested to make certain it meets stringent nutritional, safety, quality and regulatory requirements," Perrigo Company stated.

The recall comes just a month after an Enfamil baby formula recall due to concerns over the same kind of contamination.
