Consumers should purchase Mead Johnson products only from well established and reputable retailers. If consumers purchase Mead Johnson products from other sources they should inspect the product and label for signs of tampering before opening the product. Mead Johnson infant formula products are packaged in “tamper-evident” cans, meaning that if the package has been opened, it will be evident to the consumers.

Retailers, wholesalers and institutions who receive their product directly from Mead Johnson are not affected by this notification.

Mead Johnson Nutrition and the FDA are asking for the public’s help in reporting any information regarding the stolen Mead Johnson products to FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations (OCI) by calling (800) 551-3989 or by visiting the OCI website www.fda.gov/OCI.
