I spoke with an Earth's Best representative this afternoon, and she assured me that Earth's Best Organic baby formula has not been recalled and there is no safety issue for parents to worry about. The company received reports that the formula developed a fishy smell after it was on the shelf for a while, and that babies didn't like the smell. The formula was removed from store shelves so they could address the smell issue. The company expects to have the organic dairy-based formula back in stores in a month or so. Meanwhile, Earth's Best Organic Soy baby formula is still available, but you should check with your baby's pediatrician before changing to a different formula, particularly soy. If your baby has been drinking this brand of formula, there is no known health issue or reason for concern at this time.
If you'd like to get further information on Earth's Best Organic baby formula, or have additional concerns, you can call the company at 800-434-4246 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST.
