SINGAPORE — Baby and child nutrition company Danone Dumex has initiated a precautionary recall of its Mamil Gold PreciNutri Step 2 After 6 Months Follow-up Formula, after dairy exporter Fonterra informed the company of a “potential quality issue” with one of the ingredients.

“This information indicated that the ingredient supplied to us and in some of our products packed in Malaysia may have been contaminated. For this reason, Danone Dumex is initiating a precautionary recall in Singapore,” said Danone Dumex in a statement today (Aug 4).

Global dairy trade giant Fonterra said yesterday it sold contaminated New Zealand-made whey protein concentrate to eight customers in Australia, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and Saudi Arabia for use in a range of products, including infant milk powder. Tests showed the concentrate had the potential presence of Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism.

In Singapore, the affected batch numbers are FGMG2RG0900TNSG29 06043R1 (product pack size 900g) and FGMG2RG1600TNSG29 06053R1 (product pack size 1.6kg). They expire on June 4 and 5, 2015, respectively.

Danone Dumex has advised customers not to consume products with these batch numbers.

“If you have been using this product with the above batch numbers and your child shows any sign of illness, please contact your health care professional as a precautionary measure,” said Danone Dumex.

There have been no reports of any illness linked to the consumption of the product so far.

“Danone Dumex’s quality and food safety management system includes rigorous testing procedures of our finished products. None of the products tested and sold in Singapore indicate any contamination,” the company added.

The recall does not include other batches of the same product, or other products by Danone Dumex.

Customers with the affected products can call 1800 265 3188 or email careline [at] dumex.sg for a full refund or exchange.
