Nature's One Voluntarily Recalls 'PediaSmart® Dairy Vanilla' Because of Possible Under-Delivery of Nutrition Using Included Scoop

June 4, 2016 - From the FDA:

Nature’s One of Lewis Center, OH is voluntarily recalling three lots of PediaSmart® Dairy Vanilla complete nutrition beverage powder packaged in 12.7 ounce cans, which bear the lot numbers located on the bottom of the can. This product is generally consumed by individuals between the ages of 13 months – 13 years old. The result of measuring product with the smaller scoop is that only 60% of the labeled nutritional content will be consumed per serving. Unless this product is used as a sole source of nutrition, there should be no health risk from using the incorrect scoop. This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this incorrect scoop size.

Product was distributed between January 26, 2016 to June 1, 2016 and shipped to: AL, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NE, NV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI AND WY and the District of Columbia.
Product was also shipped to Canada.

Complaints have been received that some cans in these lots contain a 20 cc scoop to measure the product for reconstitution and feeding, rather than the 32 cc scoop that should be in the can. The packager of the product has confirmed that a mix-up in their facility resulted in some cans being packaged with the smaller scoops.

Because not all of the cans contain the smaller scoop, if you have any of the product potentially containing the smaller scoop, please look at the bottom of the scoop. If the scoop has the number 32 cc printed on it, the scoop size is correct and you can continue to use the product knowing that the correct levels of nutrients will be delivered when following label mixing directions using the scoop. However, if your scoop has a 20 cc printed on the bottom, then you should not use that scoop for measuring. Consumers may contact Nature’s One at (888) 227-7122 Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm EST for a replacement or email recallinfo@naturesone.zendesk.com anytime.
