Product batch numbers can be found on both sides of each case, as well as on the bottom of each can.

Not all cases with the indicated batch numbers were in the stolen shipment, and some cases from these same batches have been safely delivered from Mead Johnson to retailers, wholesalers and institutions.

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 is asking for the public's help in reporting any information regarding the stolen Mead Johnson products.

Consumers who have any question regarding Mead Johnson products may contact us at 1-800-BABY-123.
