(FOX NEWS) — U.S. federal health investigators have cleared an infant formula of suspected bacterial contamination that last week prompted retailers to pull a batch of the product from their shelves.
In a joint statement late Friday, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said tests of factory-sealed containers of the formula, made by Mead Johnson Nutrition Co., showed no contamination.
“Based on test results to date, there is no need for a recall of infant formula, and parents may continue to use powdered infant formula, following the manufacturer’s directions on the printed label,” the agencies said.
